Some coding is in the works. That's about all I can offer at the moment.

Beta Bob has been updated and tested - thanks to all who participated. We just need a slot when Real Bob can be updated. In the meantime you can help us by reporting spam where you see it and never ever clicking on any of the links in spam posts. In addition we have recently implemented a number of measures which are deterring casual spammers and meaning even the pro-outfits are having to take longer and longer to make their postings with more and more attempts being automatically blocked.

I won't be opening any of the dodgy-looking topics after opening one that had a NSFW image in it. Sorry.

We have got to the point now where spam has been reduced to such a level that last week the total number of spammers that paid us a visit was the same as on a single day in January this year. It will never go away entirely but hopefully the difference is noticeable.
