Hi,

I have today received notification that I had received new messages.

It turned out to be two reply messages to my message requesting changes to the 1911 Census ... my initial request was a long time ago, the data was amended and that topic should have been finished.

The two reply messages make no sense and were from user DReaFRsred.

Could you please look into this?

Regards,

Geoff

Hi Geoff -

We appear to be under attack by the spammers and bots and are trying:
- to make it harder to become members in the first place.
- to be quick to delete and remove/ban the offenders.

Several hundred new "members" have joined this discussion board in the last several days and while it is tempting to delete them all, we don't want to take the chance that there may be one or two legitimate new members amongst them and so, for now, will simply try to stay vigilant and quick on our deletions.

Sorry for the bother.

Mark
