We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service.

They're spamming this board because they can. It's probably "bots" that just automatically try every message board they can find. No one is managing the board and there obviously are no protections or barriers against this sort of thing. And there isn't any "real" traffic, so the spam is all you see. And it's not new. Cy Harrison set up the "Three Decks" discussion board, with a much more elaborate organization, to avoid this sort of thing.
