Some may have noticed it... there's a script out there that can 'read' the Invision CAPTCHA's (those hard to read images with letters you need to type in to be able to register).

Which unfortunately means we've got a LOT of spam at the moment.

So be careful what you open and DON'T CLICK ANY SUSPICIOUS LINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope the new and improved CAPTCHA's will be installed soon and we can go back to some peace & quiet...

There's no real need to point us towards spam. When we visit the forum we cleanup where needed. Which means sometimes a SPAM advert can be on there for a few hours...

Additional: if all went well, the domain radikal.ru (russian picture host) is more or less banned from being used on this site. It was used for porn spam, so if all goes well at least the pics shouldn't show up.

The update seems to have done it's work. No new registrations for a day. If all goes well everything should go back to normal wednesday evening.

That was something new for us... never had a script sending PM's before... and I haven't found a simple way yet to mass-delete the PM's a user has sent :sad:

Yeah I got a pm from a hot woman who wanted to date me on this forum. For a split second I thought having tedious knowledge about catalog #'s for vinyl releases had become sexy.

Changed username to "SPAM! DO NOT OPEN!", so if you see that just delete it...
