I thought the unmod section had made a comeback about 10 minutes ago. Well done to the mods for getting rid so quickly, would be good to stop them getting in in the first place though.

Spammers at it again under 2 userIDs - bob71 in off-topic and another one which has been dealt with in the main sections.

Good work mods, dealt with the viagra one swiftly!

They're both gone. The only way to pre-screen members it to authenticate them individually, which I trialled yesterday, but after recieving around 70 e-mails through the day, one or two of the others weren't very happy about it.

It's easy to see who's going to be a spammer from their username. Most people's consists of either a real name or something vaguely aviation related. None of the spammers (that I've seen) have, just a mish mash of upper and lower case letters...

As above, approval is (was) an automatic process.
