We have to clean up spam quite a bit usually, not seen any porn, someone else must have sorted that out.

As said it's constant battle with the spammers. I am looking to find a solution to stop them.

I got rid of some too. There were a few that were just pictures, not links. My fragile mind is scared for life  :shock:
