Don't thank me, thank Phil. He's been catching them and removing the posts and then PM'ing me the info to which I've been deleting the accounts after banning the e-mail address.

It's starting to become a full time job. As such, I've removed the captcha anti-spam settings and have gone to a Q&A for registration. We'll see how that works out. It's just one question for now, but I might add 1-2 more over the weekend. They have to be kind of simple as we don't want to keep new to VW folks that don't have a world of cabby knowledge from getting in.

Thanks for the kind words William.

Brian should get some credit too. He has been flagging them as he sees them.

Brian has spotted yet another one. Of course I deleted the post and PM'ed you.

Well I do have weird hours and sleeping habits... so it just appears that I am on-line 24X7.

Thanks to both of you then. I've taken some time tonight between these nasty storms to hunt through the members list. Wiped about 20 or so more accounts that were prollie spammers. Hoping this dies down soon (storms and spam).
