Unfortunately this site has been hit by a few spammers recently. Thank you to those members who took the trouble to report this - those responsible for the troublesome posts have been banned and their accounts deleted, and the same has been done for several other obvious spammers.
Please be careful of any obviously non-wargaming links. If you find a suspicious post, please report it.
At the right over every post you have four Buttons: one with the word "Quote", one with "Edit" and one with a Hand on it, than the last button (at the far right) is with a Wheel. Use this button and you will get 6 Options: the third option from above is "Report post". Go on "Report post" and you will get the Chance to send a Report to the admin (Keith). I write simply "Spam" in a short message. Afterwards Keith mostly acted, except in the last days.
For your information gentleman, several new 'guests' and members have been banned and deleted recently as potential or actual spammers. There is a steady but fortunately fairly limited flow of spamming incidents which I am happy to see are generally reported quite quickly. I apologise to legitimate members and guests for this problem, which seems to be part of having a site such as this.
Thanks for your efforts in keeping on top of this irritating but mostly minor issue.
We appear to be under something of a spam assault at the moment. I have a regular number of incoming notifications of new members joining the forum, most of whom are spammers. Sometimes this is obvious from the email addresses themselves, but more recently spammers with 'normal' email adresses are joining and then subverting the site.
Please continue to report all spamming issues. Please also, never follow any link from a spamming post.
It is possible legitimate wargamers might get banned or deleted in my desire to keep on top of the spamming issue. If this happens to you, please try and let me know.
Two months before appearing with the name Dindin, I had signed up as DintheDin, but remained for at least two months as a lurker, reading as many articles as possible, so as not to submit any question that has already been answered.
Suddenly, I found that my name was deleted.
I soon found out the reason , you had made a mass extermination of spammers, throwing the baby with the bathtub water
