Lo all,

Some of you may have noticed that a couple of spammers flooded the forum yesterday and today. Of course, it's easy to purge, but if I miss something I'd appreciate it if someone could drop me a line: Mike DAWT Saunders AT futurenet DAWT com (or okachi AT gmail DAWT com at weekends/evenings!).

Cheers,
Mike
Webmaster/monster

Oh, so I missed today's fun then? I can only blame work, it's obvious that I waste far too much time going there.

Is it really a good idea to have your email addresses un-obfuscated on here in plain text?

M0PHP, I'm training Google Mail's spam filter Smile But good point, I'll obfuscate them slightly...

I just had a severe shock, Mike. How can you mention spam and fun in the same breath? Not funny at all Sad

Got to look on the bright side of things, even when confronted by 200 junk mail messages on a Monday morning!

Me too. I thought it was an acronym at first! Smile

Sorry, I'm a bit slow at this end of the day.

Don't know about West Country. Sounds more like the ever so posh teachers at my High School. Razz

Well - LXF towers is in Bath and Bath is in Zummerrrzet, so I wondered if Mike had been affected by the local lingo.

I knew a girl from Sommerset. She moved to Canada in grade 7. Nice, um...er...personalities.
