Who monitors this forum site?
I just joined the wiscuba.com forum today and I've received two e-mails here from member RobertT that are nothing short of offensive to me (pornographic content).  Who is monitoring this forum to keep this kind of trash from being sent to members???

Please see this post:

I'm very active in monitoring the board - over the past month, the spam attacks have been ramping up more and more.  We used to occasionally receive a random post for a stock tip or drug, but it's been getting worse and worse.

I'm now having to scan every new member registration several times a day to remove accounts that have been registered on the forum and are obvious fakes.  Sometimes though, it's difficult to tell as they can be registered under valid, local IP addresses and have valid email addresses.  I can not delete them as I would run the risk of removing a valid member from the board.

This most recent spamming was the worst we've seen - while I was able to remove the forum posts, I am unable to remove the personal message spam.

I truly apologize for what happened, but please know that we are doing our best to prevent it.  It's hard when you have a full time job and other hobbies on the side to keep up with people who's full time job it is to create havoc on these message boards, and we are doing our best.

I just got these same emails from robert t. Didn't open anything as they appeared obviously suspicious.
Unfortunately for all of us these emails don't get filtered into the SPAM folder as the come from WISCUBA
Thanks for your efforts in trying to prevent these types of emails.
