Is it possible to remove the topics started by Guest and similar users? Most of all they are scary - I'm having nightmares of this forum being clogged up with trash. Sad

Those posts should indeed not be present.

Sometimes when a spammer post something and the spammer is deleted before the post, the post will turn into a ghost post that can't be removed anymre through the forum interface.

Are there many such posts present currently ?

I don't see 'm often anymore I must say.

Not complaining really by the way Smile , I was just getting nervous that this might be growing into a serious problem.

It requires some attention, but it's not as bad currently as a while ago.

Thanks, Stafan, for the heads up. I think an administrative program I wrote has a bug. It deletes the posts, but leaves the topics. Gotta get back to work. Crying or Very sad

I have modified the admin program and manually deleted all of the guest post. If you find any others, please let me know. The forum has gotten so large, no body can keep up with everything, so we need all of the members to let us know when they see stuff that needs attention.

thanks
