Seems spammers have attacked for a third time
He just sits there tapping away all day on a tiny screen. But he tells everyone that he is slaying Orcs.

We don't. I'm on it.

IP, email and username bans in place and posts deleted.

If it happens any more I can look at all the IPs to see if there's a common theme and place a new IP ban based on that. Seeing patterns with only 1 or 2 IPs is hard, as you can probably appreciate. I did this recently on another forum I moderate which had daily spam and once done the spam rate bottomed right out.

Btw by that I meant we need an admin to help again, not we needed another on the team

This I nothing compared to the old Fighting Fantasy forum. There were at least a dozen wedding dress posts a day.
