I recommend that we take off and nuke his server from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
(I've reported the 7 that have shown up this evening...)

Yup, his posts are quite annoying when you hit the "New Posts" button. Nuking him has duly been authorized.

There's a new one in the midst!!

Emily!! is her name... <------- please can you remove her posts!! They've taken over!

Maybe Newtek needs to sort out its forums once and for all... the issues with the search, and not receiving email notifications etc etc... it's becoming a mess, and considering this is the main hub for the public to see what Newtek are like as a business, it's wholely unprofessional!

Rant over... and not a dig at your fine work there SBowie!

Apologies for the intrusions. You probably haven't noticed, but the forums are normally almost entirely spam-free. On average, about one spammer per year has managed to sneak through (and has been swiftly dealt with). This rash in the last week is something new, though. I'm not going to do into details, since you never know who is 'listening', but there are challenging aspects to it.

Just a heads-up that measures have been taken. We'll see whether or not they prove effective.
