Hot tip for spammers - if you come up with a slightly questionable account that is close enough to real that I am willing to approve it, don't make another one very similar to it the next day. I'll just deactivate your first one.

Hi all,

Better this than you decide to close down the forum.

Yours

Just an update announcement in case anyone is curious:

The last couple of weeks have seen a massive increase in spam accounts. I'm sure there are a variety of factors contributing to this, but it has meant that my time on the forums has been mostly limited to wading through accounts to find the real ones to approve.

I am sorry that I haven't been as responsive in discussions - I am trying to allow some more time for that. And also it is increasingly likely that I have sidelined a few real accounts, so please don't hesitate to contact me through other means if you have not been approved.
