Our forum has been attacked by spammers more than usual in the last 24 hours. Since last night over three dozen spam accounts were created which is a lot for our little forum, and they keep coming.
Don't be alarmed, even if a spammer gets past the security questions to become a registered member, they do not have access to anyone's email address.
If a spammer gets on the Forum, every now and then they will create a post which is always off topic, trying to sell something, or just plain gibberish. So if you see a goofy post, that is the reason. I am getting rid of these spammers and their posts as soon as I notice them. If you ever see a post that should not be in our forum, click on the "Report to Moderator" button at the bottom of the post.
During this attack I am changing the Forum so that all new registrants require Admin approval. I am also tightening up what is permitted for non-registered users. This is an inconvenience to legitimate guest users of the Forum but necessary for the next few days.
If you are a registered member of this Forum you will not see any changes in your access.
