        Either I'm losing my mind or DIY is acting on the spammers, starting with the Knitting Section. I posted this am, bumping Jaybee's message, and now both of them are gone.

        The overall list still shows a spam post as the latest, but if you click on the actualy Knitting forum, the last post is from August.

        Is my computer playing tricks on me??


        Nope.. guess not. Just clicked on the Durkon Duster spam post and got a wonderfully lovely message that:

        "This topic is currently under moderation, please check back later."


        HALLELUJAH and THANK YOU DIY!!!!

        CS, I definitely can take only the credit for observing that the 2K plus spammer was deleted. There were a lot of other people reporting besides me and I think others made better cases than I did for deleting the spam.

        So, thanks to everyone who reported the spam, Winkas I sure wasn't accomplishing much myself! Frown

        DIY, thank you! Big Grin Big Grin

        The Shaun Bennett spammer reported this morning has already been deleted. DIY is really acting quickly on this one.

        I think we have our forum back again! Woo hoo!
