Thank you Fred

I couldn't agree more. I think the problem is that these postings are generated by a computer programme that posts them automaticaly.

The poster dosn't even visit the site.

I think they pick on this site because we have a reasonable google rating.

I will try to work on a solution to keep these unwanted postings away.

Bob,

It's a shame that some obviously automated robot process has made this forum members only but unfortunately I have to agree with your decision....

It was getting rediculous deleting them off this weekend....

It was virtually like a PC virus, the way it was re-infecting threads twice to make it awkward to delete....

I only hope this doesn't put any genuine prospective site users off from posting but the site would have been unusable without it....

Thanks Graham

I have deleted lots of irrelevant topics over the past few weeks. It was great logging on this morning and finding only legitimate postings.

I don’t think it will prevent people joining the group. They can still read everything so hopefully they will see we are a nice bunch and come on board.

Once again I would like to thank Archie and yourself for all your help in keeping the boards clean.

Yes I agree the forum is a lot better now that it is member's only.

Hopefully some new member's will come on board :)
