    Hi everyone,

    We have been suffering from an increase in spam over the last few days, both in the forum and the comments sections of our articles. I have been playing with different spam filters to get rid of it all, but there is usually a downside in terms of reduced site speed or genuine comments being marked as spam. What you see publicly on the site is only a tiny fraction of what gets filtered out – literally hundreds of spam attacks every day get bounced, but the odd ones slip through the net.

    I have gone back to the spam filter that worked best but slowed the site down a bit, and have taken other measures to boost site speed (CDN and caching, if anyone’s interested!), which are costing me more money but will hopefully keep the site experience top notch for everyone.

    If you are having any problems, please let me know. I want this to be a valuable resource for car buyers and car owners, and we are always trying to improve!
