Hi all

Over the last weeks I have recieved some spam from these groups. Unless a VSOer has gone into the cheap watch business!

This new 'jobs' one look odd too. Who sent all that?
Best. Alan.

Hi Alan,

There are moderators for all of the forums, and we usually catch these spam postings shortly after they are made.  For those reading the forums via the web, you would rarely see a spam posting.  For those who are getting email alerts when a new posting is made, you will see that initial spam. What needs to be put into place is first-time moderation for new registered users of the web site.  That is in the queue of things to be investigated, but we have a couple of other projects that take priority for the next couple of months.
