Spam filter

Hi all

A while ago we were having some problems with spam, as many of you know. As a temporary solution, we've been individually approving all members.

This week (until Thursday), we're testing a new spam filter. This tool analyses text and where it seems that it could potentially be spam, it puts the message in a queue for our approval. 

After Thursday, we will look at how this has performed and decide whether we will go forward with it.

While we're testing, please be aware that some posts could be put in the approval queue. We will try to get these approved as soon as possible. Do please bar with us. 

If you have any questions about this, do let us know.
