    Can we get rid of the guy spamming the forum with his repeated streaming messages under a succession of new member names? Can you block his provider, or do you need to move to an approval process where new members have to validated before they can post??

    Hi,
    I’ve been trying to open this site on my pc and get an Account suspended message.
    ive just tried it again and get a 404 not found message.
    ive tried deleting cookies, using a different browser and now finally able to login on my phone.
    I’ve also tried emailing webmaster but that gets returned undeliverable.
    any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Chris we have been getting loads of spam post over the last week about football and golf. I've deleted those as spam. The stupid thing is they are all posted in suspension.

    I get the 404 error not found message I may have mentioned this in here a while ago.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks Guys, I know you're doing your best to get rid of the spam... I was just hoping there might be a way of cutting it off from being posted

    Once a member gets banned because of spam their IP number is logged in the server database. I don't know if this database is only used by this forum or all forums can use it. That means they can't join another forum. As spamming isn't allowed on any forum.

    If you look at the bottom of the main forum index it says.
