As you may have noticed, iSpot was unavailable from Friday evening, January 15th to this morning, Monday, January 18. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

We dealt with an influx of spam on the site on Friday and decided to take the site offline as a precautionary measure as there appeared to be a threat of a large scale spam attack over the weekend. The team has carried out some work to reduce the risk of a similar attack in the future.

We are grateful to users who assisted by reporting instances of spam. It is important that you all help keep an eye out for any material of this nature, continue to report it immediately using the ‘Report content as inappropriate’ button.

Thanks for your continued support! The iSpot Team.
