    All,

    We are seeing higher than usual levels of spam activity across the site which is having an impact on functionality and use experience - if you do see isolated instances of spam or perhaps we've missed a couple of topics, please either PM me or one of the mods or utilise the post reporting function.

    Under no circumstances should you be commenting in the spam topics - this isn't funny, and it just makes it more difficult to clean it all up - with the most recent spate of spam, that hasn't happened fortunately which has been great - so thanks.

    I have asked that for the time being, user registration is switched off to push back the bots.

    If you have any queries, please make them known in this topic.

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Just confirming that registrations have been switched off - we can hopefully switch them back on again in the next week or so!

    Seriously though wtf @ all these korean threads.

    It just makes me wonder how they managed to post all these threads without being removed/deleted whilst in action. Well i assume it was someone rather than just a corrupted bot posting them all.

    User registrations are currently switched off.

    We'll now endeavor to clean up the mess and will provide a further update once we've done so.

    The US visa website asks for input (capture/type) and below that you have to tick “I am not a robot” before you click on submit. Not sure how much work is involved but perhaps think about this when users want to add comments to a thread?

    I don't even know how this sh*t happens. Is this real people creating accounts and spamming the forum or a software that messes the whole thing? Or a mix of both? I've translated one of the posts and it seemed like a bedtime story. It had a plot. Sorry for my ignorance.
