WTF

I think someone needs to sort out the Hacking. A number of sites have had this problem and had to upgrade the Forum software.

I concur, it's appalling and I just don't understand how it can be so hard to stop.

Something like, unregistered members (one's who don't actually own any fxpansion products) can only make one post per day.
If someone responds to their posts then they can make more posts.

Someone explain how that wouldn't work or how it would be unfair to potential new users?

The 'user'? who has bombarded the BFD3 forum today has posted 2,346 posts in one go.
How the hell is that even possible?

I'm guessing all the other forums have been hit by the same user/bot.

FXpansion seem to have abandoned this forum along with BFD3. :(

The UAD Forums had similar problems and I think they had to upgrade the forum software. It must be possible to avoid these stupid disrupters.

It's been happening for over 2 years now! Checked my post history and found this, there had been occasional spammers before then but think this is about when it really kicked off.
