In order to reduce the nuisance of spam messages being sent to us all I have stopped emails being sent out when a new message is posted or added to a thread.
The spam messages will still be on the Forum for a short while but should not be copied to every member of the Forum.

This means that it will be necessary to visit the Forum from time to time in order to keep up with messages. It is an inconvenience that has to be balanced against the regular receipt of spam messages from the Forum.

Please feel free to add your thoughts on this issue to this thread.

Stopping these emails led to other issues including errors when someone tried to register to join the Forum. Emails have now been restored and additiona measures taken to reduce spam.

Good afternoon all. For some little while the system was not sending out emails for either genuine or spam contributions. However, getting that problem sorted has allowed the spam messages to return. This is not what we want but it will be a longer term project to alter things and could require a more complex login arrangement which might not be seen as helpful.
Regards
Roger

Regretfully we seem to be suffering another spate of spam emails. This is unfortunately one of the problems encountered when using an open forum. The spammer takes the trouble to create a new user with each batch of emails. This is deleted by me as soon as possible after it arrives, but more keep appearing. It would be unfortunate if we had to move to making the Forum a Members Only Forum but we may have to go that way.
