Looks like there were a bunch of spam bots posting in the forums. I removed all the posts & also the spam-accounts. I might have removed 1 or 2 accounts also that were setup in the past 24h. There are too many accounts to know which one was real or used for spamming. I have given an IP ban to for some of the posts.

Please note, I also purged all accounts that show 0 posts in the forums! If you had an account but never posted, please create a new account again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's odd! I upped up the forum registration, but not sure if it has much of an effect? Why the sudden increase? Did the forum just become more popular or something?

@Travis: please select "Administrate User" for those users & make sure to delete their accounts also. Do an IP ban in the administrate interface also if you don't mind? Not sure if it's worth it banned all the ones by IP?

Thanks :kg:
