Alas, the FTU forum has been discovered by some rather persistent spammers and we have been very busy deleting spam accounts that have been registered recently.

Therefore we are testing a new system that is designed to identify and reject spammers when they attempt to register on the forum and also to identify spam in posts to the forum.

I suspect there is a chance that some posts that aren't spam may be filtered - so I can only apologise in advance if that happens.

Fingers crossed it won't!

If anything unusual happens to one of your posts, please let me know via forum mail or

Many thanks!
