Yep, doesn't help their reputation a lot :D I've sent a message to the site admins suggesting they consider adding a bit more security to the site by checking IPs on registration for known spam sources - we'll see what happens.

Meanwhile, deleting a few more messages...

Looks like the admins have gotten on top of it for the moment - now back to what passes for normal :-)

I spoke too soon :ouch:

Hopefully the admins will get some preventive measures in place really soon.
