Just a heads-up, folks: we're currently getting a bit of a wave of unregistered visitors (check "Who is online" at the foot of the main page: we've just set a new record). Now, maybe we've got some good press all of a sudden, in which case, hello all! But maybe we're currently the target of a bot swarm. I'm hoping it's the former - and at the moment there's no tide of spam to suggest the latter - but keep an eye out ...

This is the first time that I see this flag on a post.

...does this mean that he's being audited by ... assassins?

I assume there was a "Pending approval" flag? That's normal. All new members have to have their first posts approved before they can be seen by the general public (you have modlike powers for Oolite-Linux and Testing and Bug Reports, so you'll be able to see, and approve/disapprove, any new posts in these sections).

It certainly is at SSC - 19 pages (@25 per) of spam posts since last night! They don't have first-post approval - yet!

Lots of activity from this IP in the last few days.
No kidding! And those are only the ones that get reported …
