Can I make the suggestion that your IT suppliers put a daily limit on the number of posts by any one user?

Not sure what that limit should be but you can probably assess the daily number of posts by your more prolific responders.

It's either that or have 24x7 monitoring of this thread.... :-(

Hi Adrian,

I'm sorry for the high number of spam posts left here yesterday. We have spam filters in place that are meant to prevent this, but obviously they didn't work today. We have now deleted and blocked those particular users and added increased anti-spam protections, including increasing the interval users must wait between posting new messages and the delay before new users are allowed to include links in their posts. Thank you for your feedback.

Best wishes,

Rosemary

Thanks Rosemary. I appreciate that it's never easy to monitor for spam and you have a fine line to steer between inhibiting the morons and accidentally stopping prolific posters helping out.

Your actions seem a good approach.
