Is there anything that can be done to prevent the spamming which infects these forums with increasing frequency?

In the past it was one or two spam posts now and again, but recently it’s become numerous threads that are simultaneously attacked. 

It must be a pain for you as well, Tim, having to remove them all each time.

It is, and I appreciate your reporting them. I have no control over this forum software and as you suggest, no time to get involved with it beyond a few minutes every day checking for issues. I will email the author though.

Is the spam getting in due to vulnerabilities in the forum hosting website or by other means?
I presume the spammer isn't registering with SD in order to post....
Would upgrading the forum to https help?

They're registering and validating their email address just like anybody else using the forum. The author is on it, we may need to wait until the next batch appears and then I may delay removing it while the author checks it.
