    We are aware that the board has really been under attack the last few days by spam bots. While a solution is worked out, please continue to be diligent in reporting posts of this nature so we can quickly remove them. Sorry for the trouble everyone.

    An update to this situation... we have disabled new user registrations completely at least temporally. If you are looking to join the site, I'm sorry but you'll have to wait.

    In order to hopefully combat those spammers who already registered but have not yet attacked, we have adjusted a setting that those with 5 posts or less cannot start topics.

    Please continue to report any spam posts you see. Thank you!
