I was being bombarded by dozens of new members appearing in my inbox. Bloody spammers. As Venom so eloquently once put it they can F.O.A.D!

Seriously though if anyone suspects a spam post before a mod does could you please PM one of us to let us know.

Cheers

The only way to avoid this is to implement a spam filter that ask a question, the same as largescaleforums etc,

Ok people, that was me above ;D. Turns out the spambots were programmed to target SMF forums so it was not just us. We have implemented a simple addition to the registration procedure that should fool the bots (its asks them if they are human!) so  hopefully we see no more of them.
