Housekeeping note: word verfication turned on

Sorry but I had to do it - we just got hit with 50 spam posts in a minute. Rich


  • We turned it off again as they were spamming old threads but should it get worse we will turn it back on. :)

  • Why would someone spam our blog? Are they trying to crash the site, i.e. denial of service attack? Glad you guys are tech savy

  • Same reason they send you junk mail Chris.

  • Rich, this is probably a terribly stupid question, but how did you know we were under attack?

    Were there posts that you've since eliminated?

  • Basically we get hit by a load of anonymous posts with links to casino sites, etc.

    The downside of being listed on google etc. is that 'bots' can find us and automatically spam us. If it happnes a lot, we'll be forced to turn word varification back on.

  • That's a pain in the neck. Thanks for taking care of it.

  • ps 4th place in the league and an FA Cup is a very questionable use of the word perch.

  • I think they may have been reigning European champs at the time.

  • The five stars in the F*****G is clever. I will give them that. Amazing how much time you can spend on flags when you don't have a job.

  • Did I ever tell you my supercroatigorbiscan story?
