Hi guys

I am well aware that we are getting constant spam from two spam bots. Unfortunately until another moderator or someone with admin rights comes online the best I can do is to continue to delete their posts as I spot them.

I've also been deleting them as I see them. That's all we can do for the moment.

Not true. I have issued a warning but can only raise their level to "warning". As a moderator if you also issue a warning and raise their level, they should fall into the moderated group, meaning they need to have their posts approved.

Done. That should block them from posting, then.
