Why has this forum been allowed to fill with spam? I see some spammy posts from as far back as August last year.

This forum seems to be asleep, like Cthulhu. When will it rise? Angry

Yeah. The forum hasn't gotten much love in a long time. What to be a moderator?

Have reduced the recent splurge of spam as well as deleting a lot of dormant or semi-dormant accounts that seem to mostly be bots. Added an additional captcha option to registration, as well as returning to requiring Membership Approval to turn registration into membership (we can review this later if the captcha is doing it's job).

Hopefully you'll all see a lot less spam and bot activity from now on.....
