That's great news the spam was getting out of control.

Just look at the list of those online now. The genuine members are highlighted in bold:

Bhikkhu Pesala, agf8vttib, Ali, Archibald, artyman, Bill Hunt, brhfvloj, bvvludrgg, cbeale48, ccvfdktev, dcfhvpxz, DIMITRIS, Diombawairm, dp31ante, dsaleoya, emtfmsck, ezwyoqqvu, fewybq67, fkqeavty, fsaf123cIc, hpclfpwy, jamesf, JAS13, kkervikoh, kxmfpg82, lxtqze94, lzkcbcnx, mart4494, mcztjm02, meanman, mneragtz595, moritqaq, nfpcb24m, ns17udin, nzfuzpsy, omdoljzi, orx1etrrr, pa40782jk, palqs14d, qbl2hbbbq, qhdxiarni, rjy5jkwoo, rrdxom19, sescazcs, ssloupsn, stzqhkfxu, sv37prij, TAE, Tom., u2ihxp7v21, uwzwskph, uYoeuderj, vo48lciy, vw14qikp, vzrnhq07, wjcuy95q, wqnmlgb4t3x0, xl55praj, yfxoxtrnb, ykfos93c, yshshrxg, yu57782aj, yuiav99q, zbqlxlnux, zkcjqnpf

When I logged on early this morning, my name was the only one that looked remotely like a genuine username.

All of these with random names have zero posts. I guess if they're not trying to post spam then they're harvesting user details or something else they that should not be doing.

They are all likely signing up to then post spam. There were over 1000 spammer signups on Saturday, which Patrick kindly deleted from home. Sunday was quiet, today the spammer signups seem to be back. We're keeping an eye on it and will take some more preventative action if required.
