All we can do for now is mark them as spam and alert the C9 team to delete the threads when they get to work in the morning.
I have some mod powers now but I cannot delete threads otherwise they would be gone!
i would click on it to mark it, but allas, iam at work and i fear there is content within the threads that could get me in some form of trouble ):
@TLapworth93: Don't worry about the content -- just text and phone numbers, no graphics or links. I've marked them all as spam and emailed the C9 team, so hopefully they will vanish in a few hours.
On the other hand, if you find yourself in Ahmedabad at a loose end ...
Why does the forum allow a user to make so many topics at once?
What i was wondering was, since they have been put up here. Perhaps programmers are more likely to use an escort? The plot thickens...

They've hit the TechOff as well, I see.
It's an outrage...
...how much I want to take a trip to Ahmedabad.
Perhaps this is a plot by Apple to make Microsoft look even worse than it already does. Being sued for not keeping a promise about promoting other browsers. Coincidence, I THINK NOT!
Deleting them from the website doesn't remove them from RSS feeds, unfortunately. In cases like this, C9 should be doing some spam detection and delaying posts until they can be verified if they look like spam. Don't let this crap get into the RSS feed.

Do we need someone in UK time zone who can target this kind of spam as soon as it appears (thinking Dr H. if he is up for it)?
@Ian2: I have recently been given mod powers to lock threads and remove individual posts, but I cannot delete threads (I cannot remove the original post on a thread either), so if someone spams an existing thread I can remove it, but I cannot remove the current rashes of threads.
and I thought it is only me-in India!
