Invasion of the Spambots

Well damn, guys. I just blow back into town to see we've been visited by some very zealous spambots. I didn't know we were into those kinds of bots or cons lately. :P

Restrictions need to be put in place.
Insecure at the moment, anyone have ideas?
I hope our TFNZ are not on holiday :D

We should spam the spam bots

I've reported a few , it's up to the Admins to rectify the problem now.

I have turned off the forum to new users for the time being

I only have limited access to deal with things on the forum.
I need to check why the moderators can't action any moderator settings as well

Actually that's a great idea ?
As a prevention measure for spam bots.
On a regular basis like a patrol to keep spamers at bay.
