This will only hide the posts in-thread, it will still give you new post notifications. But you will be able to pick out the real posts from the spam with ease.

Go to 'User Control Panel' it is up the top of the forum just under the Soda Pop Miniatures logo.
In Options, go to 'Friends & Foes' and then select 'Manage Foes'

In the field enter this list

*list removed as it was no longer relevent, but just add anyone you want to hide to your foes lise*

Click submit and then OK.


NOTE as new spam bots make accounts you will have to add to this list, but this should cover all the ones currently posting.
Hope this helps.

EDIT: Removed list of bot names as the bots have all been deleted.

We are working on banning, blocking, and deleting when we find them.

For the ones that post a lot of different posts I have to pass it up the chain to a mod with more power so they can delete the user and their posts in one go.

Hit the report button and let us know as it makes it easier to find them.

I know. I have been reporting a lot of posts, and each post can only be reported by a single person.
My post is to help people fight through the spam whilst people wait for it to be cleared as it ends up in legitimate threads and we still need to be able to use the forums.
