Just a heads up. Some of you will notice your in-boxes have a number of “you've received a comment on your tab” messages. Unfortunately, they're all due to automated spam accounts posting spam in your tabs' comment sections.

I've contacted Johnny and informed him of the situation, so there's no need to flood his PM box with complaints. Rest assured we're going through all the activity and cleaning up the spam as we go.

I've deleted all the comments, all the posts, banned all the users!

Thanks LoudLon and TheDude for their help!

The timing couldn't have been better (or worse, depending on your viewpoint). I'd just logged on to check the forums – and within seconds noticed the first spam post. Gotta credit the bots with their speed, though; for a few minutes there new accounts were popping up and spamming faster than I could keep up with them LOL

Just think of all the good these spambot programmers could do in the world if they concentrated their efforts on more productive things. Like…

I got nothing.

oh well whenever we face an attack we get the chance to buff up the security a little bit, so there's always some good out of it.

if I'm not asleep I'm 100% at the ready to combat anyone that tries to mess with us
