Just marked 32 new threads all as spam (in both Aus/NZ/Pacific & Asia forums), all by the same username!

Someone beat me to cleaning them up.

Was it the same spammer as yesterday? Indian company, lots of different subjects? (From website hosting to "work from home"?) If so, it wouldn't at all surprise me if each forum in turn is going to get such a dump of threads over the next few days... :/

Yeah I think so, can't remember properly though as I just flicked through them quickly and marked them as spam.

Quoting Peter

Someone beat me to cleaning them up.

Yeah, I sent a private message to Eric/dr.pepper who cleared them up!

I have to say I'm getting exceptionally annoyed with the German Vietnamese Community Development Organization promoting their volunteer trip. I've just reported the latest member, who's spread the word in 6 forums. I removed the 1 from NA so make that now 5 flagged posts. Weekly, they create a new user and spam away. I'm betting the IP addresses are all different too. Have to say they are persistent little worker bees but get the hint - it's not working!

Looking at the website they post - there is no mention of any volunteer programs, just tour opportunities. But, most of their pages just throw up error messages containing nothing but code also.
