We have tried to block his access to the site.
Let me know if it continues to be a problem.

Michelle, these spammers outnumber new legitimate members quite a bit.

You might wanna set the forum program so that new users cannot start new topics until they have maybe 10 posts under their belt.

I agree with Scrupulous

This is getting old really fast.

Even one or two posts might be sufficient to ward away bots.

I have no clue about how to do it, but I assume it's gotta be possible to ward off the spam.

I don't know why these are coming on in such a constant barrage lately.
We will try a few things and see if it helps.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions.
