Suspect you may be needed.

Do you moderate the first couple of posts of new members?

Dave,

Thanks , we were hit by a couple of spammers overnight which I have now deleted their accounts. I take your point re Moderating the first couple of posts and see why it might be needed. Will discuss with me Global Mod and make a post.

Thanks for your support ?

It is pretty annoying and time consuming to keep on top of them, but we will keep on top of it between us all!

Any "problems" that you think I may have missed, please PM me with a quick detail as I may well pick that up quicker than logging into the newest posts.
Thanks for your vigilance guys.

The difference is simple:
A troll is looking for a fight.
A spammer wants you to go to his website.

I can sort out spammers - usually - but trolls are a different matter! ::)

Ahh right - got it! Thanks Bella! Great to have an answer without the huffing and blowing and 'you must know that' chucked in as would be the case at home!  :'(

As for those trolls - if anyone can zap them out it would be you! Good luck  ;)

Yes - its me! :-\

I was deleting some more spammers this afternoon via my phone and couldn't see the boxes right. Have ended up deleting my own account! Hope I havent lost my shoe!
At the moment I cannot moderate until I am allowed my old status back, which may take a while as everyone out in the sunshine obviously!

I have also found that the PM availability is not activated at the moment, again, we will sort this out.

Please ignore spammers - do NOT log onto any websites from others than known members, just incase they are corrupt.

Normal service will be resumed asap.  I am so stupid I know, and sorry too! :'(
