    Well, I was hoping it wouldn't have to come to this, but given that nothing else I've tried has slowed down the deluge of spam posts/registrations... we've switched over to manual account approval for the moment. I hope it won't be for long, just until all these bots stop thinking of us as fertile ground for their nonsense, but we'll see how it goes.

    If you register with the forum for sincere reasons and find that you haven't been approved straight away, drop an email to forum@reddwarf.co.uk and I'll prioritise approving you!

    Sebby, is there a way to turn off the 'time limit' between reporting posts? I have tried to report a few spammy posts one after the other and been told I must wait, sometimes up to 11 seconds!!!!!!! I'm a very busy man, 11 seconds could cost the economy millions.

    Well I am very glad to have made it through the screening process!

    Seb just a heads up, I tried emailing forum@reddwarf.co.uk over Xmas and all of my mails kept bouncing back
