Default Recent surge of spam

The mods are aware there is a serious problem with spam posts that have been flooding the forum recently. However, we can only do so much without the admins intervening who seem to be un-contactable via PM.

Admins, if one of you reads this post, give one of the current active moderators admin privileges so we can do an IP range ban.

Sorry about the slowness from the admin level - we read emails but not PMs sometimes, we're getting mods set up now.

We actually recently gave Yaustar and Adrir high-level rights to ban IP ranges, and we're looking at better solutions right now - apologies.
