    I wonder if the mods have given up as they are fighting a losing battle with little or no spam filters to help keep the trash at bay.

    I was avoiding posting the date, why give the spamners an easy time.

    It's definitley a spambot, maybe 2.

    And there may be a new one, we have been getting Keto spam for a couple of months now on one I moderate.
    5 to 10 regisrations a day, but we take them down before they get chance to go wild.

    You will never stop spam but you can keep on top of it so that it doesn't ruin your forum.

    I've received an acknowledgement from the Head of Communications at Shaw Trust, (copied to their site feedback team), we'll see what happens.

    Thank you for your email which has been passed to me. I will pass your comments through to the right teams and ensure someone comes back to you. I am aware that over the festive season this may take a little longer, but wanted to assure you that we appreciate you getting in touch.

    That could mean anything. The powers that be possibly didn't realise the immense spam problem. I do wonder if any action will be taken. Hopefully yes.

    I wrote an Official Complaint today (20 December 19) to their snail mail address, almost every post I create ends up in their automatic moderation list off the active forum and takes weeks to be approved, most likely this post too will end up in their automatic moderation list!

    I made the scale of the problem quite clear in my email, and made it clear that it reflects poorly on their whole organisation, we'll see what happens when their website team gets hold of it.

    TBH I don't expect anything rapid, but you have to try and get the wheels moving.

    (I also have another 2 plans up my sleeve, but one's a bit extreme and I'd have to think very carefully before using it).

    I hope the extreme plan is not what I am thinking.

    No not that, not by my choice anyway.
