It would be nice to have one or more moderators on the Off Topic forums who actually take a look there every now and then; there are currently a few reported spam messages around there which have been around for quite a few weeks.

I've already reported it (by clicking on Image).

Now it's waiting on a forum-moderator to delete this message.

(the spam-messages in the forum "European Association of EuroBillTrackers" are already deleted)

I was just wandering whether these two new users (this and this one) were spammers or not, due to their "unusual" kind of message. :?:

It's still here.

However, what I really wanted to say is that I've started adding IP adresses of spammers to the Moderator Log; one can already see patterns (i.e. addresses showing up multiple times). This should make it easier for the admins to ban spammers from our forum.

Please delete this message. And please ban this user, of whom I've just deleted a spam message for the 4th time.

Is the Finnish language forum unmoderated at the moment? This message has been around for more than a week!

Lately, there is a user or machine that is annoying us throughout ALL the forum with similar (I would say identical) spam messages :evil:
(Worst is that I think that it registers again and again and again... is it possible to do something else rather than just deleting its posts?)
