I was in favor of guest posting when it first started, it even allows the members who forget to sign in to post. There is now a new breed of guest who copy earlier post and then add their ads, websites what ever at the bottom.

This morning there were 6 posting by the same "guest". I thought great until I opened the post. It is annoying, I opened a few but then gave up.

Anything we can do about this??

All cleaned up now Marie.

Hopefully just a one-off - I'll keep an eye on it and take steps if necessary.

Not all the spam was posted by guests - some was by signed up members - so banning guest posting wouldn't necessarily solve it.
