Ive been thinking about this as well


its been long gone since this board had active members


As a leader, there needs to be certain changes made; items need to be addressed, things need to be taken to heart.


This website needs a public service announcement, a new mandate. It needs to inform its community that it will not stand for spammers. In a more postive note change is not always a bad thing. I think its about time they changed the layout again? Maybe add thee ignore button? I for one would like to see this website thriving again!

Not destroyed, just in a much needed tune up. And quickly. 


I can't believe the spam is still here. It took a few days the last time or the time before that but not this long.


Maybe too busy with the convention? But it's over already.

So finally we can use the site again (after almost six days of being down) and the spammer is back with a vengeance... and the Admins are nowhere to be found.  How long will it take them to respond this time..... or will they?

Does anyone know why it went down?  If it was to do something about BJVUBBUTCVKVI and other stuff,  it certainly didn't work.  Its actually gotten worse since they put the stupid captcha in.  How this guys able to put in 3 or 4 posts in a minute has got me stumped.  Most of the time I have to go through 7 or 8 captchas before I can find one I can read or are even real symbols.  The Captcha and people reporting  people to get them banned has totally ruined this board.  I'll check back from time to time but until then RIP.


No response must mean you all agree.

Throwing up multiple posts very quickly is very easy with macros.  It's a useful tool when testing code, but it's just as destructive for sites like this that isn't managed well.

U know a lot about it - mmm - maybe you are Spammer or are in cahoots with spammer perhaps ?

It's obvious spammer hates everyone here,.

I would appreciate it if you actually read my posts for information... and then post based on some knowledge, not baseless accusations.  As anyone that's been around here for any length of time knows, I'm an IT Director and have a lot of experience with many different IT systems, including running websites and forums.  It is common knowledge with anyone in my field that there are tools out there to make a lot of posts on a site.  It's people like me that stop hackers.

The last person who said stuff like you, YHW, was a person named "Chud is Here".


Tht person began to blame everyone else for all the spam, saying they were the spammer or in cahoots with the spammer. Now, I really hope you aren't the spammer, and I'm not saying you are.

And just how am I supposed to know about your CV Mr.Bam ? I'm new here and haven't met you anywhere else online (and believe me I'd remember someone LIKE YOU).

Your duplicity doesn't surprise me at all.... You say that you don't know me, but have no problem accusing me of being the spammer just because I know about some technology that every competent IT person knows about...

Lucky you.  The spammer has branched out and is now throwing up a lot of junk into existing threads, not just their newly created ones.

And now more spam (and I even warned the Admins before it happened - the spammer accounts started showing up in the "Recently logged in" list.)
