I have just reported a new one, they clearly have done absolutely nothing to prevent the problem. Nothing done about the one I reported after 2 hrs and now a further one. Clearly DXO don't care about the problem.

DxO, please do something about the trolls

It's really amazing that nobody at DxO seems to be able to setup an effective filter for spam posting. There are a lot of forums in the world running SMF and most of them are not as plagued with spams as this one. Webmaster, please look at the SMF forum where advice is available about such issues.

The measures taken didn't work well. Trolls are still making their way in.

I think the only thing being done is taking them down so at weekends when they are all away there is no one to do that.

Right. There should be a tighter filter at registration.

It seems there were several days without trolls. It looks solved, doesn't it?

Let's hope that it's not just that they're all still recovering from Christmas etc.

Now that the issue seems to be solved IMHO this thread could be deleted… hoping trolls won't come back. ;)
