Spam Messages
There is a lot of spam recently and I delete tons every day. Sometimes there are > 50 threads to be deleted and then it does not allow me to delete them in one go. So I just give up.

Yes, starting last weekend we have had a very aggressive spammer present on the forums. I have started to adjust filters and blocked IP numbers and it has got a bit better, but we still get hit quite bad now and then. I will continue to try to improve and adapt out spam protection.

Here comes a short update. We are still getting a lot of spam messages but our filters and blocks are working much better now, close to 95% of all spam messages are caught by our filters :)
