Props to Prime Monster for cleaning up the forum so well.

I started catching up on reading new posts yesterday afternoon, got interrupted, then finished just now, and I didn't see a single spam post - I didn't even know what this thread was about! Well done.

So, I take it when you delete a new post from an otherwise old thread, it drops back to being 'old'?

Could you or Mike ban the ip/host of the bot, or does it change?
It might be smart for the server to keep a rolling list of recent posters ip's, based on quantity. Then when something like this happens, you could ban them fast.

Hmm, perhaps a way to delete all posts from a single source? But that's harder to do with 'guest' posters, right?
They could at least do us the courtesy of registering before spamming us
