An unfortunate part of it all. For some reason, they think they can actually advertise that way. In any case, I've notified the administrator so that stronger measures can be taken. In the meantime, all I can do is delete the posts and ban the spam accounts.

That is the best way to get rid of it. It happens to all forums you just have to monitor the situation.

With forum upgrades, it's getting harder for Spammers to target the big forums. Instead, they have to move on to small forums such as ours which aren't as well protected.

I've just been told we're now updated, so we should see much fewer bots for now.
