Recent problems on our web-site

Dear Old Symondian,
Recently we have been plagued by supposed 'members' who join, post an advert which gets sent to the membership, and then leave. They have no connection with the school and in fact don't exist as people but are computer generated messages. The consequence of this could be that messages from this site are eliminated as Spam by the ISP. We have tried to keep the list as informal as possible but in order to stop this abuse we have decided to ask prospective members to apply for membership. In this way hopefully we should get no more adverts posted from this site,
best regards,
