    There’s a heck of a lot of spam on the forum right now. Are there any mods around who can clear it up? I’d do it myself if I could.

    We are working on it and we are working on fixing the problem as well

    Charlie – as a stop-gap, you can do what Anitac does – send me a tweet. I’m on vacation right now, so I’m not around as much as I usually am, but when I see a Tweet, if I’m around, I’ll log in and clean them up.

    I am caught in SPAM on this one – http://www.studiopress.com/forums/topic/creating-a-landing-page-in-agent-press/. My responses won’t post. I am off to bed. Thanks Susan for jumping in here.

    Just want to say, we are still looking into why the spam is happening like this. Askimet does not seem to be doing what it should be, but I have coded up a plugin which should make it easier to deal with by allowing us to block a user and mark all topics and replies as spam.

    While I have tested this in a clone I setup of the forum we do not wish to activate a new (especially one that was literally written yesterday) plugin on the weekend. If this spam is still a problem next week this new weapon against the spammers should help quite a bit.
