    Okay. But I just know decided to see something and I found this from 2013:


    There was also this earlier this year: https://packetstormsecurity.com/files/132845/xenforo-xss.txt

    Anyway, whatever the issues may or may not be the spam is not at a level where it's bothersome. So okay I'll report those I see.

    I suppose that depends on your perspective. At the moment I remove approximately 2 items of spam per day. The problem is, suppose whatever automatic mechanism is used to generate this rubbish is ramped up a bit. It is a bit like seeing a leak in a damn - if you do nothing about it, it grows!

    I agree with that. I was just going along with what you requested and putting things in the best light - rather than continuing to push the issue. Though TBH I'd think that this site isn't trafficked enough to be targeted for large-scale bot attacks. I wonder if it's being used as a test site.

    Good advice... I've just been ignoring spam assuming someone else has taken care of it. I'll get off my lazy butt and try to pitch in around here.
