@Andy Millne- I'm intrigued by what I believe to be new members that I would categorise as 'phishing' for new targets to scam.

I could be totally wrong and if so I apologise unreservedly to those I am referring to :-

I know everyone has their own naming standards that they use when joining community groups and lately this group might get one new member every couple of weeks aand here is occasionally an unusual nom de plume but 4 in three days, using a similar naming format, is, to me, suspicious:innocent:.

Can we tell from the group 'activity log' what, if anything, the new members are looking for?

Yes, those are clearly spammers. There are a number of things we do behind the scenes to prevent spammers being able to register but occasionally some get through. There's nothing to worry about however, all new members have their content and actions moderated until they are shown to be genuine members.

If any spam content is posted it can also be reported. There are some automated actions so that if a number of people report the same content it is automatically hidden to be dealt with by a moderator.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
