So it's starting to look like a free for all here with all the spam turning up. Last I heard the folks at starbike won't give the mods the necessary controls to prevent it, and some of them are leaving. This really sucks.

It indeed has, sorry guys. we are fighting the spammers with our hands bound.

You can help us out by emailing Florian at webmaster@starbike.com and ask him to install the capcha that is needed. Also ask him to give me the full administrative rights. at this moment they are letting us out to dry.

I'm sorry for you guys. Please send the email. Maybe they will find out how annoying spammers are when he gets all the emails asking this in his inbox.

Thanks!

What Frankie says is correct. We are fighting it. Please do report spam, and we will ban and delete.

Hopefully we will get the tools we need to slow down the onslaught. In the meantime please be patient with us... We are no longer reading or enjoying the forum, but spending all of our on line time deleting spam.

Not good for anyone.
