I suppose it is a back handed compliment that this forum is attracting spammers who want to post messages promoting their unwanted and unsuitable web sites. If we weren't so popular, we would not be bothered!

I have updated the registration process warning people that their registrations will be deleted if we think they are unsuitable. We check IP addresses and email addresses people use during registration and if we think they are no appropriate, we delete the registration. There is also now a time limit of 3 days to complete the registration process.

With all these measure, some persistent people will get through. As soon as we spot an unwanted post we remove it, but we cannot watch the forum 24/7.

If a post does get onto the forum which is unwanted, please email amersham@amersham.org.uk straight away and we will be alerted and can deal with it

Thanks
