And they're back! 

 

This is seriously getting old.  Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence.  Three times is enemy action.  Time to upgrade site security, I think.

We're doing what we can. frown Now that there are farms of people actually creating accounts for spammers, it's a lot harder to deal with it. We're discussing options...

Luckily, when a spam user creates multiple threads, we can delete them all when we delete the user, so it makes getting rid of them pretty easy. We just have to have a mod/admin around to do it.

Not blaming the mods on this I know you guys do your best.   It seems like cajunjoel or whomever is the admin for the forum needs to put something in place to limit this.
