    We have a spam filtering system that works pretty well but I think it was broken during the most recent hack. We have been deleting at least 40-50 new threads per day but almost all have been put in the moderation queue so most of you would never see them. I did a reinstall on the spam filter this morning and beefed it up a bit so hopefully that will fix things.

    Why not just suspend new user registrations altogether?

    FWIW, I'm seeing the same ads in tapatalk I started seeing just before we were hacked last time.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body.

    Something weird is going on. Every thread I read shows that there are additional subsequent pages in the thread, even when I know I'm reading the post recent page/posts in the thread.

    Sorry everyone. Not a hack, I just screwed up applying a security patch, so we had to restore from a backup.

    It warms my heart to see how many of you contacted me offline.

    You using Tapatalk? If so, Tapatalk is free now and they run ads to generate revenue. We get about a $10-15 kickback per month which helps cover our hosting costs.

    If you are talking about the occasion post from a new person with poor english skills promoting a movie-download site or something, we just try to stamp those out as we go.
