    I can't access delete on the recent spate of spam threads. And no, I don;t know why? I have raised the matter in the mod forum, since nothing has happened overnight I shall contact admin by e-mail.

    Sorry. We actually had one subforum, Politics, that allowed Public/Guest access and that way the spammer was able to post without registering. I've deleted the spam and fixed permissions to Politics to correct that loophole.

    As always, if you notice spam, send a PM to me or one of the other mods or admins and we can get it cleaned up much quicker. Lately, I only get the opportunity to check the board once each day or so, looking through the forums for spam, but sometimes its hard to spot unless I go through each new thread. I'm also looking for any trolling/flaming to head off as well, so it makes it hard to participate in discussions. By time I've finished looking through the threads, its usually bedtime!

    But a PM will email me and I can correct a specific issue quickly, perhaps on a break at work or between school and work.
