We do block spam as much as we can as you clearly have seen.  When floods happen, they can happen.  As you yourself said, it was not until last week that this really started.  Just an FYI...The Spam detection system was down as it is fee based and I never seen the renewal invoice.  (Yes, we pay to have great spam protection for this site.)

 

In any case...we do block by entire countries that would really have no need to be on the site.  

 

 

Why does this list not surprise me.

There is something strange going on in this thread, when I open it I get the login box for the admin cp.  While the box is shown the reply field is not shown, when I cancel the login the reply box displays  Very strange

I edited the thread as it seems my cut and paste was from an admin area and was calling images from the admin area.  Opps.

I experienced the same thing when I posted.
