I'm blaming Vladimir Putin and his trove of cyber bots.

Just removed the better part of 100 topics - they are now also hitting multiple forums. Sods.

We are looking into the registration terms to see if we can make it more challenging at that stage for bots to get through.

I don’t think we need it tbh. The mods are dealing with it quite quickly.

We've changed the registration settings from Q&As to CAPTCHA - this should hopefully make it more difficult for the spambots to get through.

Thanks all of you for your patience why we've looked into sorting this - as always, please report any topics which slip through the net.

There is one spamming account (created 45 minutes ago, I have checked its profile) active in the GAD.

Can’t answers be human related for new users? E.g. how many number ones has Mariah got? With randomised questions that any basic music would know?

The mods don’t get paid to clear the bots right? So it’s better to have a stronger technician defence to putins bots.
