We got hit like crazy yesterday. Trying to ban email addresses on signup, etc to help stop them from getting that far.

We have a couple of great moderators here but if anyone else would like to volunteer to remove spam from the forum I would be open to making more people mods. More eyeballs = faster removal.

Yeah, there was a huge increase in spam starting from yesterday morning. I've never seen so much spam here before. Crazy.

I'll check back late tonight and early tomorrow morning to check if we're hit again :) That seems to be when most of the spam is posted.

It seems to me that spam appears every time I reply in the forum. Can my phone have a virus or does my google-chrome browser include a virus?

There have only been 2 spam messages on this site since the 22nd when this thread was started. I'd say the problem is on your end. Try a different device/browser and see if it continues. If it persists, try to post a screenshot.
