    Hi! Has anyone else been getting A LOT of forum notification emails from the Casp site, from one “ahmed faisal”? I’ve gotten at least 50 in the last day.

      Yes. I got about 50 in one afternoon as well…


      I reported the account that kept making so many new topics.

      I couldn’t find a feature to change my email notification settings on here so instead I just set a an filter to delete them as they poured in.

      Looks as though they’ve stopped now though?

      Yes, we had a bot attack yesterday. I deleted the account, but not before the spammer created about 150 new topics. What a pain in the butt.

      I got the same.  Every two minutes across several hours.

      I’m still getting notification emails. Is that the system just catching up with the backlog then?

      Thank you for dealing with this. Must be so annoying.

        A very annoying ordeal! We that run this site are just a small group of people. Hopefully when we have the time — or another volunteer! — we can upgrade the notification system.
