      Some of you may have noticed that occasionally a spammer gets through and posts a lot of messages all over the forum attempting to peddle Viagra or similar nonsense.

      Apologies for this, and please rest assured that these characters get an instant ban and all their messages get deleted as soon as humanly possible!

      If any spammers slip through the net and either contact you via a private message, or post in part of the forum that I haven't noticed, please either alert me through the "Report this post" button or PM me.

      Thanks,
      Gareth

      I'm very pleased to announce that the spam posts are now history thanks to an improvement to the forum software! Basically, all new members have their first post moderated before being published. Such a simple but effective improvement! :)
