NEW ANTI SPAM MEASURES

Due to a recent flood of spam, mainly originating in Russia, i have now placed all new signups onto moderator approval, meaning if your new here your first posts wont appear on the site until moderator approved, but dont worry, once we see you arent a slimy spammer you will be set free from the bindings ;)

I've also banned the complete IP list of a certain Russian service provider ;)

For all regular users, if you see a spam post sneak through, please use the "report this post" feature which is one of the small icons that appears on the top right of all posts.

Thanks,

Ah, that's what the exclamation mark is for, never noticed it before.

I've seen spam effectively kill some forums. There can never be enough anti-spam measures.

Thanks for that, wondered why my posts had to be checked, I guessed it maybe a newbie thing
