No, nor had I until I checked the mod queue. I then realised there wasn't any email auth on new registries and had changed captcha back to the old default numbers. I soon changed that again after all those. It would be close to 600 or so dodgy posts by now.

what about all those users that are registered? will you be deleting them? seems like there are a bunch of users that registered just cause they could!

Yes, I just deleted all the posts in the mod queue, then every time another was added, I banned the user. Its now caught up I think.

Needless to say, there is a bit more of a harder registry level now.
