I have noticed that when I get an email to say someone has posted, its an advert for clothes or trainers etc. I thought this was not allowed and have reported it. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I just find it very annoying to go and look,expecting a post to do with then OP and find cheap trainers instead. Is COMs now allowing advertising ?

Sally, they are autospammers. I've just spent time going through and deleting some just now. Believe me, we are finding it annoying too. We have contacted CoM to ask them to find a way to put a stop to autospamming, but for now, we have to try and manually keep up with deleting them. So far today, I have seen 5 autospammers post and I think I got all their posts, but I'm sure I've missed some. Each of them seems to post about 15 posts, so that's a LOT of posts to find and delete. If you see something that we missed (and believe me, I'm sure they are there), report it because that will help us find it.
