Excellent news !

And as Bob said, its only the public folders they have access to.

But its good when the "introductions" section is clean ;- it gives new members a chance to make contact with the "old lags" such as myself.

The spammers are secondary to this discussion.  The front page reads that the site has been all but abandoned by its creators.  There is lies the rub. Start a site, ask for participation, then bail.  At least you'd think that someone would take the recommendation to make one of the regulars an admin so that there is at least a watcher that is concerned about the place.

Rod, when I visited the site at circa 16-30 hrs BST  (British Summer Time) I noted both Justin and Tony were looking in, perhaps Justin had a hand to sort things out..?

Yep, Geedee.

 

I contact him when the into forum gets too full of crap, and he's only too happy to clear it out for us.

He's one hell of a nice guy (they all are) :)
