This site has a serious problem with one or more spammers.  >:( The Administrator needs to delete those messages, permanently ban these people and try to figure out some way to keep them from coming back.

You're not kidding!


If all the issues related to the updates weren't enough, it was an epic dust-up in front lines on the spam battle last night and today:


What wouldn't you not do if you didn't know you wouldn't fail?

Sorry about that everyone!


I'm glad to say that I think the walls the hold the barbarians at bay are back at full strength and we've hunted down those that got through. But let us know if you see any more and we'll get on it.

Unfortunately, today there is spilled Spam in the Himalayan isle that needs to be dumped in the trash.   >:(

The Himalayan forum has really been polluted today. The spammer seems to be concentrating his efforts there and appears to be leaving the rest of the RE forum alone. So at least that is an improvement over last week.

Thanks. It would be nice if he got the message that he is not wanted here.

I am not quite sure what to make of the last post in this thread.  I wouldn't quite call it spam, but then it has nothing to do with motorcycles, either:  https://forum.classicmotorworks.com/index.php/topic,25707.msg303603/boardseen.html#new

Well, that is nothing new. It is amazing that those Bears are still flying.  The U.S. has been intercepting those things since the 1950's and we still are.  :(

In context of this forum I was thinking more of a "testing our defences" parallel (the irrelevant poster was Russian, after all,) rather than the anitiquity of some of the Russian air force bombers!
