    Lots of low post users/Spam

    Is it just me, or do others think that we seem to be taking a bit of bashing with spam getting through and low poster count users endorsing products?

    Have the mods had their weetabix recently?

    We tend to get increase in few weeks before end of term (BETT/Xmas) and also we probably don't get them as quick (due to everybody being busy at work and at home due to xmas).

    Please do report so we can try and deal with them..

    We do try and get to them but as Russ says, it is hard to keep up and as we can't really read every post on every thread (except John, of course ) we really do rely on people reporting the ones that they see.

    Like trying their EduGeek password against their email address to send out offensive emails to their families? I like your style...

    We couldnt do that sadly as we encrypt all passwords in non reversible format for obvious security reasons.
