Let's leave it at that.

Thanks for your patience, the mods did a sterling job yesterday keeping them at bay. We have now deleted all accounts registered in the last 48 hours (apologies if any genuine ones were in there) and changed the registration criteria which seems to have halted the onslaught of automated spam bots.

We have recently been attacked by spambots so have deleted all accounts registered in the last 24 hours.

Please re-register if your account was genuine, we apologise for the inconvenience.

Another surge in spambot activity has resulted in the deletion of all spammy looking accounts registered this month.

If a genuine account has been included in this purge we apologize, please re-register.

Can you get rid of the spam bots LEV, or am I really the lucky 1,000,000th visitor and have won an Apple product?
