Right ho, I've weeded out those spammers for the moment.

Those are bots, and they are constantly pinging... looking for a way on. Once they defeat the countermeasure question, they just dump garbage all over the forums. It is trivial, but it is irritating and it makes the forums unusable.

I just need to update the forum countermeasure question whenever they crack it.
