Thanks for flagging it up, Phil, we are continuing to be watchful.

It’s random, they’re posting like any other person. I’ll add some extra characters to the spam block in the morning.

I’ve added the spam phrases to autoblock and increased the post count to automatically check for spam, hopefully that’ll do the trick.
