Increase in malicious / ad spammer activity

Hello forum heroes!

The morning of July 1st we’ve noted an increase in advertising or unrelated malicious spammer activity.

It’s key when reporting these posts to use the Spam flag as this triggers some nifty automation which helps clean up prior to moderators taking action and helps the machine learning detect and prevent the spam from appearing as time advances (AI wooo!).

We’ll be looking into the forum set up also to avoid this in future but it will take some time to tweak the dials to get it right without impacting legitimate new users too much. If you’re a new user, the forum may ask for your very first post on the forums to be approved by a member of the team, we will process these regularly and ask for your patience during this time. <3

Thanks for your help in the battle against the bots.
