    Just wanted everyone to know that we have taken note (and a lot of other websites have reported this as well) of all of the spamming that has gone on in the past few days.

    These are generally spam-bots, they are robot programs that figure out how to login and post messages ... advertising and pornographic spam mostly ... and we kill them and they come back.

    The mods and I are on it, and new counter-measures are coming soon.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Ok, I used my lunch break to install some anti-spam software. There is one more question that has to be answered when registration occurs. This should stop 99% of it all! :great:
