Re: Spam attack last night - new member registration closed temporarily

Yes - DPNow especially attracts a lot of spammers, which is very strange because the forum is much quieter than most. I'm reviewing our registration filters.

John very handily dealt with the bulk of the problem here and has volunteered to be a mod on DPNow as he is a bit of a night owl - as I am but I have to get up early during term time so late nights are fairly rare for me.
