Spam bots!

Either this Patlerraws is a bot or a hacked account since it seems to create new threads by the minute about medication or something! Either way it's making a mess of the Project Ukulele forum!
I'm not entirely sure on how to report a user or how to contact the admin, so I'm making a post about it.
Edit: Now there's another one... this Corettadep is posting the same things as well...

Their posts are being deleted it seems! So I think they know now! :D Finally! Hope they get rid of those accounts.

Thankfully I woke up in the middle of the night. It's 3:15am here in England -- my mod senses were tingling! Wow, there were so many bots. I will be sure to put pressure onto Andy ASAP to implement a Q&A captcha which should stop this happening again!

Thank you for getting rid of them! Here's to hoping that doesn't happen again.
