Can I reiterate to members to ignore it. Do not reply, or send PM's etc etc. We find them all regardless.

Ignoring is the best thing to do, although I laughed out loud at Idle Al's response to one of them. Wonderful sense of humour, Al! Very Happy

OK, I'll just reply here on this topic. You'll see the post "Absolutely free movies" from someone called "adultfilmz". Somehow, I get the feeling that they're not talking about Robert Youngson's The Golden Age of Comedy.

Thanks anyway, but there is no need. We look at all posts. Just leave it to our staff.

We've had the same problem with our forum, we get messages trying to sell all sorts of things to diet tablets and exersise bikes! It is becoming a real problem for all of the forum communities and its a problem which needs to be shut out and destroyed.

What we did on our forum we made each new member enter a code before they joined, so that could eliminate some of the bots. It worked as well as it could but we also found that actual people were also logging in trying to flog there merchendise! So we then put a five post start limit before anybody could post a new topic, I know it seems a bit drastic but it has worked and we've not had any horrible messages for a good couple of weeks!
