This is getting beyond a joke. How many more new joiners will there be with a link to this stupid site of theirs?

I think three in a row means you can delete them if you want. Or you win a prize...

Is the link put there by them or is just an ad which pops up automatically? I know I have had ad's pop up in that section of my posts before now which have been nothing to do with me, maybe coincidence or a third party? Could be spammers or an automatic generator thing - I know on other sites I have joined you have to type a series of numbers and letters which is written weirdly on the screen to prove you are a real person and not a machine tring to log on and spam the site.

The links are on their signature lines, and have quite clearly been placed by themselves. Adverts appear only at the bottom of the last post on a page, between the main body of the post and the signature.

I agree it's fishy, no posts about books??? Can moderators block them?

They were obviously spammers. We can't stop them, as that would mean stopping genuine people who would like to join. We can block someone if they keep posting spam repeatedly, but we haven't had that yet.

Actually we did one morning last week, Thursday I think. Four threads in the TV/Film adaptations section started by a newbie, including multiple links to DVD sales websites. They were only up for about 20 minutes before I took them down. A one-off, but it's probably a good idea to remain vigilant.

Just a quick question in case anyone else might know - do we know where Evie is at the moment? Is she travelling around Europe still? I note she hasn't been here for a while.

Regards

Hector

She's been back for about a week, but is still returning to normal. She will be around presently.
