Thanks, everybody. Actually managing the spammers has been easier the past year or two, due to anti-spam plugins added to the forum software. The overnight onslaught was kind of unusual.

I'm glad people see this forum as a good place to gather and discuss thing. If you enjoy the forum, the best thing you can do to help it thrive is post a lot!

There tends to be a fair bit of spamming every Sunday late at night, and of course if you are from Europe you will be awake and see it a number of hours before the sun rises in North America, but once we are up over here we will remove it pretty quickly.

APK deserves a lot of the credit for handling spammers -- he wakes up earlier and often finds them before I'm up!

There were almost a hundred separate spam topics I had to delete individually this morning. That spammer was a determined bastard!
