Well it seems that a bot program or human that knows how to bypass the registration process is now out there.
The times, they are a changing.... please use the "report a post" button if you should find any of these weird posts. They have no avatar and no info in the right hand area and they don't turn up as a post that has not been previously read. I stumbled across one today while deleting the usual spam.
While I have your attention I am going to put the word c0ach into the word censor due to the endless handbag spam.
Also, thank you Grichard for giving me a heads up on the spam.
