Hi everyone,

I apologise for the recent spam, it seems all SMF boards (of which ours is one), have been attacked since Nov 10th onwards.

I’ve increased the security against the spammers, and I hope it’s now under control.

After spending about 2 hours trying to manually delete the spam, I realised I was no where near the end (200 spammers, 60 new topics and 180 new messages); so I took the phillistine approach and just deleted everything in the database after a certain date – including new users.

If you’re account or message has been deleted, I’m sorry – please join or repost.

Here’s to a return to sanity on the forum!
