He's already been deleted.

The forums are getting several thousand spam attempts a week; almost
none of them actually get through. No system is going to be perfect,
but I think the current forum setup is pretty good.

Is it possible that a valid forum member has used his/her account as a
tunnel into the system to spam us?
Noted 13/08/2008 Suggestions-t-388 original post had nothing to do with the
forum or Jpsoft products and from the gramma used; english wasn't their
native tongue.

I have a theory which includes a internal command within the jpsoft products
that allows for such a thing to happen.

Have noted at times its impossible to connect to the forum via the web;
thinking Oh well try later, still no go, go to bed following morning fireup
the email proggy and its full of spam.

No; it was a manual connection & manual entry of the spams. (It took
more than an hour in order to manually enter three or four messages, not
a very profitable expenditure of their time.)
