Banished til the next time. Posts gone. I ran a "whois" check on the spammer who appears to be a Russian mischief maker. Somehow the guy is able to authorize himself to post. He must have cracked an admin's password. I will update mine and the other admins should do the same. Meanwhile, here are the results of the "whois" search (it's a way to see who operates which ip address)

We have been having the same issue on an automotive forum I frequent. Spam postings mostly from Russia. I suspect its prime time for spammers since so many people are at home, surfing the web all day.
