Default Spam problem

Are there any mods around? Is anyone cleaning up the spam?

And the reason for the spam is mostly likely an outdated version of the forum software (the version numebr at the bottom of the page says 3.6.10, that's from 2008!).

It seems some spambots have finally found this site and are really bombing it. It could be that the only solution is to update the software to the latest version, and that's something that only Peter can do. So, are we ****ed?

I'm doing it every day I'm on, as are the other mods so please bear with us.

It's been confined to the movie forum for a while so it hasn't caused too much issue, but it seems to have escaped today.

You have no idea how much spam we clean up on a daily basis. I issued 12 bans of spamming accounts on Sunday alone.

I do.

And it's going to keep getting worse until someone fixes the forum software.

One day I deleted 80 threads from that forum. At least it's pretty much confined to that forum.
