Them and their three posts have been booted.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Booted - along with the 'Hello, I'm Chris Park. Here's a picture of me' (link to a supposed imageshack.us hosted picture, which just so happened to be a screensaver disguised as a virus!

Damn, a screensaver disguised as a virus? Lucky you noticed it wasn't really a virus. Nobody needs screensavers these days. :P

Is it just me, or has the flow of spam here increased recently :?:

Every time I visit here recently it seems there is at least one new spam topic opened discussing topics including diets, hardcore pron, supplements, webhosting etc etc. I've personally deleted at least 15... although I've now lost count under the deluge. :(

Yes it does look that way. Hopefully the new spam utility that Dal is going to install with the forum upgrade will help.
