I deleted a bunch about 18 hours ago, so you only saw part of the mess :(

More have popped up since. I'll delete a bunch more now. Looks like we'll need a new strategy for dealing with this crap :(

Maybe you can blacklist them as you go.

I think most of us will understand if you start using a CAPTCHA.

No, i won't understand...Hate captchas. You want to make it easier to post not harder.

If only it was so easy.

Well . . . I did say MOST of us would understand. :D

Let me try to explain. CAPTCHAS help keep spambots at bay, though they can be a nuisance to regular folks.

Blacklisting is pretty easy, though one problem is that spamming has become pretty sophisticated - spoofing, etc.

Phew! The flood over the past few days was rather daunting. Thank you very much for putting in all that effort!
