Exclamation Spammers

There have been about a dozen spam accounts created in the last two days. That's perfect timing (for them) considering I left town two days ago. They're coming from different IP addresses, so they're not easily cut off. I'll try to figure something else out when I get a chance.

So, please, don't hesitate to report posts that look like spam but just be aware that I might not get to them until much later than normal. Trying to ban people using my phone is difficult and tedious. So, I'll be banning them when I get back to my hotel and laptop.

Thanks for all you do, that kind of spam is nothing.

It is a problem on every forum. Normally, we get maybe a half dozen spammers registering per year. For some reason, they've increased the last few days. When I get home, I'll take a closer look at things and see what else I can do.
