    Default Spam attack

    Is it my imagination or are posters getting more and more bizarre recently? Or, alternatively, are we getting spammed?

    Is there a way of reporting spam posts?

    It's the roadsign looking button at the top right of every post.

    I'm trying to squash them as soon as I see them, and I am getting the emails about one every minute, but it does seem we're under some sort of co-ordinated attack thing. Am going to try and contact the tech guys and see if they can do something about it before my email gets full or I go mental from playing Whackaspammole.

    At least it's not like at the birth of the forum, where they basically tried impersonating you, dude.
    Good luck on spam-whackin'

    PCG staff have been made aware.

    Moderator's can remove posts etc. Give them time to act.

    On the plus side: vast reduction in spam
    On the minus side: can't read the captcha images...

    Also, difficult to screen out valueless posts, like this one
