Forum Mess Cleaned Out

Friday, January 11th, 2013

I apologize – I was not aware how bad the forum spam issue had become. There were literally several thousand posts a day of junk from chinese and other asian addresses. I’ve spent most of today cleaning it out on this and one other forum. I’ve disabled registrations for the forum and there will be no new posting allowed there. At some point in the future I may open a new forum, but for the present I’ve pruned out everything that was junk that I could find and tried to leave some of the useful posts. Unfortunately I may have thrown a few good posts out with the 400,000 junk….

I’m sorry if I’ve thrown out a good query or response. Right now I don’t have time to pursue a forum that would be more resistant to spammers and most of the approaches that I’ve seen take more time than I’m able to give it right now.
