We are under attack from a spam machine in Korea. Rest assured they will be dealt with but at present are coming in almost as fast as they can be deleted.

I have been in contact with admin suggesting a temporary shutdown while all Korean IP address ranges are blocked.

A lot of spam today on the forum, apparently there has been a big increase in general of spamming/hacking attacks in the last few days many companies have been affected, maybe better to temporally stop new people from joining.

These from earlier today are using IP addresses in Japan.

I cannot close membership, I hope high level admin will do the necessary.

Just reported 8 or so spam items.  Very tempting was the one offering love spells & asking if there was a lack of honesty, love or undestanding in my relationship.
