    @Spiritburner

    I don’t mind the valuation forum being closed, but I do not like the news that you’ve been spam-attacked!

    I hope you can get it under control fairly easily.

    Good luck, and sincere thanks.

    Tony

    Thanks Tony. It's vulnerable as guests can post. I think once one of the bot engines find it you are subject to an onslaught. However the spam measures we have are catching most of the posts but it's just adding to mod workload vetting them all.

    Yes, the spam measures seems to work. I don’t think any of these spams got past the "moderation queu".
    All of those I have removed these last days were stuck there, so they never got published for the members to see.

    Sorry for your trouble with miscreants.
    Thank you for your work here.

    Nothing better to do than bother people.
    We get zoom bombers in our zoom meetings. Useless waste of air space.

    Part of the job, but I wish it would not happen, there is too many spammers, pushing, and scams for my liking. One day it will catch me although I am very careful.
    Cheers
