Hurrah! Thanks to Giles, for sorting the problem - and huge credit to Cody for putting in a long nightshift of killing, killing, killing …

Has anything good ever come out of yandex? I'm inclined to ban all @yandex.* email addresses. What do you think, Big D?

I tend to agree - it's certainly become the spam domain du jour, and even though it's a legitimate provider I don't think I've ever seen a single real forum member using it. Maybe their Captcha has been compromised or something, but it's currently representing at least 90% of all the bots I'm seeing.

We can screw it off now, and try unbanning it again in a couple of weeks.
