Well it looks like the robots maintain a sucker list and we are no longer on it. I have not deleted any spam in weeks.

Maybe we finally banned all their IP addresses :)

Glad they're gone, hope it lasts!

Well they seem to be back. I can still edit posts and banning still works but the delete a whole thread seems to have dissaoeared. Now I can edit posts but they are still there.

Thanks GlennD.

How is retirement treating you? I have transitioned to consulting which is working out to be about half time. Nice to be able to spend holidays with family and not trek into office.

I reported the latest bunch of spams posts and gotten a response so hopefully they update the registration process to keep the bots out.

There have been a couple more spam posts since, but they are all from users that registered prior to our update - so far looks like the improvements have done the trick!
