The first job of every working day is to moderate the forum which, unfortunately, does mean some spam posts are visible all weekend. In order to keep this forum 'real-time' and to allow the dedicated whisky forumites to post links etc, all we ask is that you are a little tolerant of the spam over the weekends - we'll get rid of it as soon as we can!
Thanks, as always, to everyone who reports spam posts; 20 pairs of eyes are much better than 1

This is probably the result of an open membership rather than moderator approval , it's the reason i deleted the old SOI(then Islay Visits) board , got sick of going in to reject the spammers who were trying to join and having no new postings to read .
Almost makes me want to start singing that old Monty Python tune.
But then again there are also a fair amount of spammers that likely are legitimate people that could foil most security questions. Which the only way to stop them is to really make more work for the moderators, but needing each new member to be approved individually. I hate to say this but Whisky forums are rife with keywords that spammers look for when searching for sites/ forums to spam, and spammers seem to be adapting quicker than softwares can adapt to counter act them.
