Thanks, Suzi. Now I have the Monty Python Spam song in my head.

But that's a good thing. Mr. Green

On a serious note, the sooner we can move to the new forum software the better; this one is almost 10 years out of date.

Yup, that user needs to be blocked/banned ASAP. I'm not sure how that slipped through the screening/activations. We usually look at their signature and links and the signature on this one is so obviously a spammer (unless they changed it after a mod approved their account). Accidental approvals happen to.

Just a reminder that mods need to look at the signatures as well as any urls listed in profiles when screening Smile

Sorry for the issues... can't catch them all I guess.
