Can I just add my thanks to the mods/technical monkeys (in their hats) who are defending the forum from all this. Hope you get to the bottom of it soonest, and we can go back to discussing the wholesome delights of 2000AD, cheese-based IT solutions, bumsex girl, whether we want to look at women's underware and all the other amazing things this brilliant place has provided over the decades.

I would also like to thank the mods.

I think I should point out that when I usually try to log on here with my VPN still on I usually get notified that I have been permabanned. Then I have to turn off the VPN and clear my cookies before I can log in again. This hasn't happened in a while now, and I'm only after realising. Is this useful information?
You may quote me on that.

Just means the bots are closing in on the aggregate tastes of the Forum demographic. Expect Sally James, Nigel Kneale and Fighting Fantasy gamebooks to feature heavily.

I can't imagine how the likes of Quatermass could be adapted for that kind of... (suddenly remembers the existence of the 1985 film, "Lifeforce").

Ah.

Never mind.

Ah well, on the plus side, the pornspam seems to be back to the more salacious Benny Hill kind ...

Very suspicious Russian language post in the Top Dredd Epics Results thread. By a new user with one post. I wouldn’t click on any of that, if I were you!

More on "BARGAINS/DEALS THREAD (?)"
Much appreciation for the mods handling this craziness.

Think I got that earlier today... Just checked the last three pages and I didn't see anything inappropriate there.

Obviously, if any of you find any that is there for more than 24hrs let us know.

They’re all bots anyway, so: yep. I can’t recall having ever deleted a standard account from here. (Even bans are vanishingly rare.)
