I can't see how they can use automatic software as you need to register and log in to all the different forum sites. A tad boring being a spammer. tullie, just google some of these spammers' forum names and you'll see the repetitions of the spamming.
If you spot one of these spam threads I will be grateful if you can post 'Spam - FE notified' and then email me with a link to the thread.
Then others can see that the thread has been reported, and I don't get twenty emails about the same thread. That way we can keep the forum spam-free. We can't stop people spamming us in the first place, but we can certainly make sure that their posts don't remain online for very long.
