Spammers

Post by RavenOfSummer » 09 Oct 2018, 10:35

It seems there's been an influx of spam posts on the forum? I wonder can anything be done about this? Also not sure whether this means there is a security issue with the forum overall.

Ahh, hi Jo Ann, it's good to be back in! I wasn't able to log into the forum for the last couple of days. Hopefully the spam issue can be taken care of. Thanks for all your work!
