Hello Superiors and submissives,

Yesterday, both fora I moderate came under a spam attack. That is why several threads moved from archives to the top of the queue. It also explains why I have missed a few posts - the real got buried by the spurious.

I've banned the posters and their IPs, at least according to
Voy, who have presumably tested their method.

This nonsense is annoying and a bit time consuming. Compared with other fora I've viewed, I'm the most "out there" moderator, partly because I don't want each poster to have to deal with captchas. However, if spam takes up too much time, I may have to resort to this odious practice. So far, the experiences of yesterday and today don't come close to trying my patience. If this changes, I'll let you know.

I remain your obedient servant,

micheleFFS
