Forum Side Spam Issues

Hello all. Apologies for the state of the forums at the moment; basically the forum host is crap and deals with spam really badly. I stripped out about 200 spam posts last night, and literally thousands of spam tags, and I’ve had to do the same again today. Basically somebody’s got a bot spamming tags and posts faster than I can deal with them, so the forum is essentially unusable until whoever it is gets bored and stops. I can’t even ban the bots as fast as new ones sign up, and I can’t set the forum side to require new commenters to be pre-approved.

Basically the forum host sucks.

That is all.
