A notice for members

Post by speysider »

If you are seeing a huge range of members using IP's in the following range, then you should know that they are all spambot script IP's. I have had to ban them due to too many of them. If you want to, you can copy and paste the IP range belowand ban it. Anyone in this range will be immediately banned from the forums.

194.8.74.1 - 194.8.75.255

Also, Kevin Clark informs me that you should take a note of their email domain. Don't bother banning @hotmail.co.uk and @googlemail.com, you might ban legitimate members.
