    Thanks Jos. I've noticed that once a thread has had spam attached, that after I have removed the spam, the spammers are attracted to that thread and repeatedly attack it if I don't lock it. I've removed spam from this thread at least 3 times and may have to eventually lock it and start a new one.

    What happens if that spam reply is moved to somewhere else? Would those following replies also be posted there? If so, moving the spam to a bogus group would attract those spam bots to that sink ...

    kind regards,

    Why not? Everything goes through port #80 and there's nothing forum software can do to protect itself against the traffic; http is a lousy, overestimated, protocol anyway if anyone asks me (but nobody does ;-)

    I suspect that the new poster is a spam bot.

    Greetings,

    This user keeps on posting Russian spam (about everything as far as I could figure out).

    kind regards,
