Problems with spam.
« on: June 27, 2016, 08:16:35 PM »
The membership list was purged due to glitches in the security settings of this forum that led to continual spam attacks. Everyone is required to re-register to become a member, and to answer security questions.

We hope the problem is now solved, and we are sorry for any inconvenience.

Posts separate humans from robots.

Have changed the anti-spam settings to require validation with a captcha and simple questions, but still getting spam. Apparently there is a bug in the system. i don't think the robots can reply to a post. We will remove posts that are obviously spam. We don't want to remove posts that are from valid human members.

Due to the huge amount of spam we get, registrations that are not validated by email after one day will be deleted from the membership list.
