Spam Threads

As I'm sure most people have noticed, there has been an influx of spammers on this forum recently. We got hit hard early this morning - I've deleted around 200 threads and banned around 30 spam accounts that were created within the past 24 hours.

If you see a spam post or a suspected spam account, please report it. If there are no staff members online, feel free to send me or another staff member a private message letting us know that spammers are online. I can't speak for everyone, but I check my email frequently should be able to come online and handle it. If you see any lingering spam threads from the past few days, report those too... I think we got them all but we could have missed a few.

Please bear with us as we deal with this issue. Thank you.

Absolutely, if you PM one of us we will get an email about it as well. I also cleaned a ton up last night, I'll have to take another look at the anti spam settings, but we have definitely never been hit like that before. Thanks @Ryan for your hard work.
