Spammers

In recent days there have been a lot of spam threads being created on the forums, around 30 today for instance. They have all been for a well known sport/trainers footwear starting with N and followed by an I, then a K and finally an E.

 

We have created a rule which means that any posting which contains that word won't get posted on the forum but get sent direct to the moderation queue.

 

That does mean that there would be a delay in genuine comments containing that word appearing here.

Those 30 threads were posted by 4 different spammers so Velvet still retains the record - it hasn't been broken

 Thanks for sweeping up the forum for us El Loro. 

Your post had got sent to moderation as soon as you posted it 30 minutes ago which is why you didn't see it as it picked up the Adidas in the quote. I've OKd it a few moments ago and it's showing the time I OKd it rather than the time you posted it
