I like how the proof reading falls away in (normally) the second sentence.

It was a resplendent circuit that involved a process in Dorset alone.

Another 3 bots managed to sign up last night so I've changed the registration settings.
When a user registers, they will only become a member once they are approved by an admin.
This will allow us to vett them before they get the chance to post.

A bot managed to signup an account and post 550 long posts this morning.
Seems to be hard for the system to delete that many for some reason.
Sorry for any piles of emails that you may have received.

Yeah ... that was the biggest it's ever had by far.
There is a minimum time a user is able to place more posts which would of slowed it down and probably avoided an overload.
Thanks goes to bluesbass who spotted it and let me know before it got any worse. 8)
