  1. Hi All,
    I see in the last few days we have had some spam members. I am sorry about this. I just wanted to let you know that as soon as I see them on the forum I will delete them and their posts.
    When registering members do have to calculate a sum inorder to join although this is not hard so maybe bot spammers can bypass this. I will look into upgrading the registration system to deter spammers.
    In the meantime please be careful when you see a clickable link in a post, if you are not sure what the link is and where it goes then please don't click on it. Thank you all for ignoring the spam posts and for letting me know that they are on the forum. It's great to know that we have created a supportive community here at farmingfriends.
    Thanks again everyone and sorry about the spammers!
    Kind regards
    Sara @ farmingfriends

    Hi Sara,
    I was wondering if the last person who posted on the lifespan of ducks was a spammer? the comment was not very nice I thought.

    Regards
    Lorna.

    I agree Lorna and think it ought to be removed so it doesn't upset anyone - as it seems to mean to.

  11. Hi Everyone,
    I am sorry again for the spam posts, it is certainly keeping me busy, thanks again for everyones vigilance.
    Just to let you know that I think it's the server that is being targetted as we have 4 forums that I know about on the same server - farmingfriends forum, topveg forum http://topveg.com/forums/ , vintagetractorengineer forum http://www.vintagetractorengineer.com/forums/ and birdtablenewsforum http://birdtablenews.com/forums/ and all have had the same style of spammer in the last 3 days. I will let andy know and he maybe able to sort it for us as it's not nice for members to have to look at this and avoid it.
    Hope you have all had a good weekend.
    kind regards
    Sara @ farmingfriends
