cool.gif I have noticed at least two posts by very new members that appear to be links to some sort of commercial sites. One was in the threads about bargains, one was in the thread about kopi/kapi. The one in the bargain thread was about mobile phones unsure.gif and the one in the kopi/kapi thread asked people to send private messages. rolleyes.gif

ISO, dz and Speculatrix would you have a look and see if I'm just being paranoid? smile.gif It would be a shame if we had to go back to 'vetting' new members but it might be needed if this is really the start of spamming the forum. sad.gif

I got spam reports from those, but by the time I checked 'em out one of the other admins had deleted it or something. I'll keep my eye out.

There's an IPB update (updates from here on now should be super fast and smooth). Maybe it has some more anti-spam stuff. I'll try and get it in this weekend.
