Guys,

I have banned the two IPs they were using, banned the accounts and removed all the posts. This may or may not stop them (or the program that has created these accounts anyway). If you see more just drop me an email is the best (david at exploroz.com) and I will get onto it asap.

I can easily bulk delete and change stuff to get rid of them just need to know. The mods only have limited control so if this comes back please let me know. I am smashing down a wall in my bathroom at the moment - this little fart around with give me greater hammer swinging power now.

Thanks for the alerts, hopefully that will be it but I am ready to fix it if is start again.

Having another go - but will not say what measure I have taken so they cannot work out what may be the issue. I now suspect it is actually people and not a program - this makes it harder because they will try keep trying. I will gauge a pattern in the end and will sort it.

Just try a google search and they are all over the forums. Put 4dw australia off the air by the look of things. Anyway I will leave you tp it.

Thanks David - a pain of a job with a human behind it.

Lucky for me - I wrote the entire system so know exactly where I can put test code in and how to get rid of stuff quickly. Have a good one.

No problems and sorry I killed it - I was selecting a bulk load of rows and did not see it till I had already pressed the delete button.

Have a good one. I just wish I could be smashing the wall not wasting time on idiots....

This is a test too. No new posts for nearly an hour. Is this correct?

Well there is mo reason the system will not be working as the controls I put on will stop everthing if it triggers so replies and followuos would also stop! Got a question to ask!

David & Michelle,

Reading between the lines it appears you have had some strife on the site.
David, you have me worried when you say you are demolishing a wall and had a fee beers, does that mean.... "look out computer"? ha ha !
