I go away for the weekend and all hell breaks loose!

Thanks for taking care of the spam, I went and deleted all the leftovers and now I’m in the process of banning the two culprits. Again, thanks for all your help.

Mim, they seem to be getting temp IP addresses—probably from the internet cafe or via proxy. Is it possible to block a range of IP addresses?

Not that I know of, but I’ll look into it. As I said before, if they want to spam, they’ll find a way. My hope is that they will eventually see it’s a fruitless effort and stop wasting their time. Here’s hoping.

I’ve deleted a few from "Transport." If the same spam shows up on all the forums, I’ve assumed that just deleting it where I can is the best way to deal with it???
