Looks like spam has hit in a bad way today.

Sadly, once this problem occurs, like termites it doesn't seem to go away. Looks like Admin team will have to look at the anti-spam techniques for forums.

This was particularly bad just one day, but I've cleaned this up now after changing the registration spambot security settings and there has not been a repeat since.

Well done! I noticed that either the mods had been working very hard or the threat had subsided :)

The mods did some surface level cleaning, but the acid rain was severe enough that the Admin had to come in with some heavy bleach and do a full wipe down and put some future-proof coating ;)
