More and more spammers are registering and posting spam messages.We apologise if they have caused irritation to our members.
We do try to delete the spammers accounts on a daily basis. No spammer will be allowed on the forum if they try to post at all

Can you not impose a rule that says new accounts need to wait 24 hours before they can create their first post; this would disuade the “create-post-run” idiots or webbots that do this sort of thing?

The forum does not have that option, and thedeveloper has stopped updating the softwareAnyway, many users join because they have an urgent question, so it is better to let them  post immediatelyA better way would be to block certain email address extensions because the spammers are recognisable by their emails, however that is also not an option
