Indeed it is a lot of spam. There aren't any mods online to delete it though.

I was only gone an hour (making supper), but it is clear for now...

Raze, you need to shed your mortal coil and become a spirit of pure energy.
Frankly I find it very insulting that you haven't already. Don't you CARE??

And there's more spam...

Hope that Larian can do something about this a bit more permanent and automated so poor Raze doesn't always have to clean it up...

How quite annoying. I've just deleted about another 20hundred or so examples of the same old rubbish but unfortunately I don't have the ability to suspend problem users. I'll clear up periodically while Raze is having some hard-earned sleep but I'm in the middle of dying my hair at the moment (yes, I'm sitting here typing with my head covered in orange gunk and cling-film!)

Spam is being removed much quicker now, thank you whoever is moderating things.
However, there needs to be a more permanent solution, I have never seen a forum with this much spam.
There are literally 50 spam topics each day.

There are some forum security updates planned, but I don't know how soon they will be implemented.

Whew! I was expecting to come back to find many more pages of rubbish to delete having taken an hour out to do some exercise and have a bath! Thanks for not being asleep when you should, Raze. laugh

You know, the worst spammers are the ones who post a spam thread every 20-30 seconds... So, if nobody spots it right away, then we end up with 40+ spam threads...

I got the rest, and another that tried to start again a minute ago.

EDIT: good response time on that last one; I tried to delete a spammer 26 seconds after they posted, but by the time I opened a new tab they were banned.
