We received the first spam post a few days ago, of course it was removed right away, and the the sender is now blocked from posting.
 
Be warned: Spam posting is NOT allowed on this forum, and we reserve the right to prosecute the sender!
Everyone should know that the forum software automatically stores the IP-address of the sender.

Unfortunately, it is getting worse!
It seems that these dammn spammers have discovered this forum.
Please apologise any inappropriate posts, I'll do my best to remove them as soon as possible.
 
Of course I could dissalow guest posting at all, but my intention is to keep the forum open to everyone, so for now there will be no extra restrictions.

I have now taken counter-spam measures. Guests have to enter a verification code before submitting. The code is displayed as an image, so bots will not be able to read it.
 
I hope this will stop the spam issue.

Just for the statistics:
In the past 24 hours about 300 (!!) spam attacks were logged, but not a single one was successful.  
 
Its good to know that the counter measures are so efficient.
