Oh Lorna/Helen, what an awful spam attack this site has had. Just despicable. Sorry that you are facing a major and time consuming clean-up.

Just noticed that just about all of this spam is gone.

Thank you, Chris, I've almost finished. There were spam messages dating back to 2016. The back-office stuff said 145 spam messages, but I'm sure there were more than that. Some threads had 2 or 3 of the same spam in them. Good to get it cleared out.

I looked at it, too and thought...omg Lorna is going to be very busy. Thank you, Lorna.

Yes, thank you Lorna for your hard work. It's nice not to feel obliged to report every bit of spam, especially on this rather slow site.

Lorna you are amazing - thanks so much!
I have been otherwise committed with work over the weekend so it was all left to Lorna.

I am also looking at making some significant changes behind the scenes that will hopefully be more resilient to spam attacks.

Not a problem, Helen. It was good to see the posts disappearing an making things better for all of us. I'm happy to help in any way I can to keep the forums 'clean'.
