    It’s been going on for a while. We haven’t seen Rob for months so no one knows what’s being done, if anything, to combat it.

    Yes, but that's just treating the symptom.

    Yes i do the same and report. Not easy for the admin as as quick as they clean the system the culprit has changed the user and hit us again. Really if it were down to me i would charge say £20 pounds for membership as they don't like paying for their rubbish. If i could start a poll i would do but i don't know how to do that. And this Forum is worth far more than that.
    Joe.

    Good idea @joe mc donald and for me the money collected should go to charity

    I understand what you’re saying, Joe, but I think there’s a problem. If TTF becomes a mandatory, paid-for site it will also keep away the casual members and set a higher the expectation of what people receive as part of that membership. If I wanted to pay a substantial amount to socialise with people on Triumphs, I’d join the owners club.

    Couldn't this be managed by simply making it impossible to post anything unless you've been signed up for, say, 72 hours?

    Or just vetting the first post before it goes out. There are various options, including restricting Russian IP addresses.

    I don’t think that’s likely, unless you know something… :)
