Ok, I have removeed all posts and the user responsible for the biggest spammer attack on the site so far, the user posted around 240 single spam posts which have been fairly removed.

I am still watching, just trying to divide time with all the things calling my attention, I still haven't been able to define an approach to the main site, but right now I am basically unable to test the choices I have at my disposal. The site won't stay as it is, but it may be a little loner than i hoped.

Cheers,

Nif.

Nif,

Thank you.  I started to clear them off, but got called away.  Good to know you're still lurking in the dark keeping an eye on things.

Yeah I noticed it from the logs, I merely banned the guy and then removed all his posts, much more efficient then removing 1 by 1. Wink

Think it's the same guy responsible for the last attack?

Not at all, this is probably jsut an automated spammer, teh last attack was truly a hacking attack.
