Yes, as I recall you could not make two postings in a row. But what is apparent with these bar stewards is that they dig up real ancient topics from widely different themes, which then proceeds to gum up (for want of a better and printable expression) the works.

The latest one - a CharlesGoms - is a pill peddler, and in his/her/its signature he/she/it lists yet again his/her/its wares, and one that caught my eye was one that I feel he/she/it should take a large dose of him/her/itself - for disorders of the brain - a malaise from which he/she/it is clearly suffering since he/she/it also took the time to post the 'traditional' 34 comments.

It makes you wonder from where he/she/it finds all these names since I am more than convinced that it is all down to one particularly warped and deranged individual with far too much time on his/her/its hands/feet.

Would also like to see, that once the spammer is zapped, the thread drops back in order to reflect the last legitimate poster.

the solution would be a more robust members joining / log in. A spam bot detector, or a basic question the prospective new member must answer. Or an email that has to be replied, Or a new member has to wait 24hrs before their account is active and they can post.

The truth is thelocal doesn't actually care, the forum probably generates very little in terms of revenue and offers little click bait. So they'll do nothing with it.

Perhaps it's a disgruntled former poster with an axe to grind. Any guesses who?

It seems to be a lot of work to post that kind of spam here...now that we are on it, what sales(?)profits could it bring???

I'm thinking now that financial reward is not the reason for this intrusion...so what else could it be...

It's been about two years now...Right!!!

And now we are thinking...who...could it be!!!
