I've taken some measures to ban what I intended to be "fake forum members" today. We've been getting 6-10 spam/porn/hacking type posts per day lately. After some investigation, it looks like many "forum users" joined in the January through April time frame. They never come back on the site until they post the spam/porn/hack posts. So looking at how the recent offenders have operated, I pre-emptively banned a couple hundred forum members. Hopefully, I didn't ban any legitimate members.

If you hear of anyone having trouble posting (because that's all I banned them from - posting) please send me a private message and I'll un-ban them.

Good Morning, Joe. Thanks for taking this proactive step to thwart the hacking by spam/porn/hacking Forum Users. It is a difficult problem to deal with throughout the internet system but the step you have taken may help. I am sure that you and Tom Lee have found the "Report This" entries several of us have sent in recent months to be tedious but we appreciate what you are doing as Moderators of the website. Let's see what your action does to blunt these hackers. Have a good Memorial Day holiday.

This is a good thing !

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
Cheers
