Yeah, we got hard hit by spammers. Much to the point where even I couldn't keep up with it. For every message I deleted, about 20 took its place. Like a hydra except not as cool.

First I closed the registration. Then I deleted all the users and posts. Then I upgraded the security. And now let's hope they stay away.

Unfortunately, they didn't stay away. But I check every day, once in the morning and once at night, deleting all spammers. Also, they need to verify by mail, so I know their email address is real. When I ban them, they also receive an email about their banning. Hopefully they stop at some point.
