*bumping*Calling Chris - if you still get notifications Is anyone on your "tech team" able to explain WTF is going on with this site?
Can anyone out there please get rid of the spam that overwhelmed the site? There are pages of it on the General Running thread.
You need to ban the B*stards that are individually doing this.
Ditto for the Training Pages.
The recent change helped the spammers, they can be completely anonymous. It's not a viral attack, it's just some d!ckhead out to prove a point, using ctrl c and ctrl v.

It's a bit of both Blisters. It's a spam attack and is run through scripts. There's certainly morons behind it all, possibly once pissed off at being teased by a runner
Wow. The cleanup's actually begun. Thank you to whoever started it. Can you please stop the g.gif people as well. They hit RW a few months ago too..
Hi Little Ninja, we're currently in the process of blocking spam traffic from Asia, and I'm also in the process of cleaning the database now.
Apologies for the spam.
Cheers Dave. I guess you have a long night ahead.
Cheers Dave Best of luck
Another bug to add to the repair list
- In the 'upgrade', quite a few people/ everyone? lost their bookmarks.
Another bug to add to the list:
- No email notifications are being sent/received. Last time it happened - your mails went to my junk email despite being on the 'safe' list.
I hope that spam filter is coming soon Immediate Media! (Yes I know this is an old thread.)
