I also sent him one and only have the ability to delete one post at a time...Paul can do them all in one shot and kill the spammer too.

It's a bot...the spammer doesn't have to do anything...and of course doesn't care what chaos is created as long as one person hits the link. I am for an authentication as well.

I'm a member of other forums which DO NOT require you to sign in each time, and they don't have these problems. It has to be an issue with the registration process being easy enough for bots to complete

Agreed. Just a little I’m not a robot thing during registration probably eliminates a lot of this.
