Spammer This Morning

Hi everyone in the UK & Ireland sub-forum.

Just to apologise but a spammer got through our automated defenses this morning (the forums get hit with hundreds of spam registrations and attempts at posting messages every day). This person posted over 90 messages in a short period here in the UK & Ireland sub-forum. This may have caused you to have recieved a large number of email notifications of these spam messages. Please note that at no point were the forums compromised at any point nor any account information exposed. This is just a spammer using the normal post thread/message functionality.

The spam has now been deleted and the spammer banned.

Any questions ask in this thread or ping me directly. - The Worlds Largest Community Dedicated To Freediving, Scuba Diving and Spearfishing
