    It's a spambot.

    Until someone with admin rights can block it expect loads more.

    Tip - use the 'New Posts' button in the menu and ignore anything about casinos.

    When you have read the genuine posts then use the 'Mark posts as read' button.

    Next time use 'New Posts' again and it wont show the marked as read ones.

    Annoying but whatever you do they will get through now and again.

    But spam removal here does need a shake up, especially at weekends.

    I see a notice that they are turning off weekend registration again.

    It's not an ideal solution because new would-be members who are looking for help will just go elsewhere and not bother coming back to register on a weekday.

    You also need to be sure that you have banned all the 'known' spammer names as they will continue to be able to post.
    (And believe me, spammers know how to get around an out-of-office-hours registration block).

    Still don't know why they cannot appoint some moderators to sort this stuff out, out of hours.
