Well at least "it" can't post in Classifieds as you need to apply for permission to post there.

Sorry all...the issue has now been taken care of.

The moderators were on the ball...unfortunately all three admins were not right near a computer at the time of the incident...it happens.

Once again, apologies.

Thanks for the quick fix.. and totally understandable that admins weren't at the computers at exactly the right time.. Wz isn't a government service.. it's an awesome free connection to Australia and the World in terms of weather discussion. Thus it's a pity when these *insert appropriate word* mess it all up.

Maybe one of those non OCR verifier scripts might need to be used..

Oh well, we won anyway, tis all back to normal!

Heap of garbage pertaining to porn sites, medical stuff and gambling.. the usual spammy links you'd expect to harass you during surfing if you had spyware problems.
