Subject: SPAM Prevention and Forum Updates

Hi everyone.

As you have noticed we have been visited by some people who have nothing better to do than Spam forums. I'm in a constant lookout, trying to keep them out by banning their host/ip's and then deleting their posts, but their numbers are growing in this economic environment. To make them a little less intruding, I just introduced a Captcha option only for non-registered users (you'd have to type in a small combination of letters/numbers in order for your post to be accepted).

I hope this is not an inconvenience.

To the people who have been spamming our forum, I say: I hope your dog bites you while you're giving him a treat. :-)

Best to all,
Bill Kranidis

Very funny, Bill. That was one of the gentlest of curses I've heard in a long while.

Thanks for keeping the site clean. Not easy. Much appreciated.
