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

Cheers

I've deleted a few posts too, sometimes I find someone else has beat me to it; being 8 hours ahead of USA gives me a head start!

I suspended one user who was recently validated and made one post which was a link spam - I made a note in the admin CP about it.

I don't suppose I'm the first to notice: a poster called Alves is spamming the board. sad.gif
