SPAM filter and GMAIL - New Update!
« on: January 11, 2013, 09:34:40 am »
We are currently dealing with an over active spam filter triggered by an  excesive amount of SPAM from gmail accounts.  WE are endeavouring to remove the login block this has created.

Please be patient and we will resolve this ASAP.

The server team have stopped the spam overload..they are now trying to re-enable gmail

The solution for the spam is a new Verification process. It is now part of the New Users registration process.

Gmail  accounts should now be-reactivated.  Please try, and email if your still having issues.

A number of gmail  account holders have now logged in and posted. So we can assume this is resolved.

New
We are still getting hammered by GMAIL spambots and the above situation is danger of happening again. A temporary freeze on new accounts from GMAIL holders has had to be implemented. Current forum members with GMAIL accounts should still be able to login.

Bump.  The server techs are still testing methods to keep out gmail  spambots (and others). When they are happy gmail registrations can be accepted again.
