For a few days now, it seems like we're getting spam on the boards. Discussions come alive again by people putting random messages there, ending in links to some other companies.

In the last three days, my frustrated cry ( got replies from one Philip Simmons, one Amanda Williams and a JaneJones 4237, neither of which added something to the conversation, and all of which who had spam links to outside sources.

A thread about a PDF problem (, which was posted two months ago and was dead save for one reply, suddenly got eight more replies in the past five days. None of which were relevant for the conversation, and all of which had spam links.

A thread about a problem with the licence, which was quickly resolved (x also got two spam replies.

    The board software should automatically catch the spam but it's not and I'm not sure why. We'll try and keep a closer eye on the forums in the meantime until the software has a chance to "catch up" with this new kind of spam.
