Le French spam? Bah! If English is good enough for Jesus and King James, it should be good enough for spamming.

stiv, can you see IPs used to post?
There have been recent posts that look suspicious as 'testing' without actually advertising. Usually necro posts that very generically say 'Thanks this really helped me' but who creates an account just to do post that?

Recent example...

There is a magic IP button that shows who,where, and other users posting from the same address. Interestingly, posts from a certain IP block are almost invariably spam - except for a handful that are from real users discussing some very technical issues.

The necro thank-you posts are pre-spam (is that a word?) and get deleted.

Well masked thank you with correct keywords, but is just a front for a spammy signature flogging shady medial insurance.
