I had to LOCK these forums over the last few days due to a major spam attack. The forums are unlocked now, but unfortunately Guest postings can no longer be permitted. Only Registered users can post messages now. Hopefully that will help elliminate most of the garbage, at least for now.

I apologize for this current inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Roger

Roger, this forums should be moderated; the flood of spammers lately is huge and very disturbing.
I'm prepared to do it; however if you find other people to do the job, no problem of course.
Best regards,

Pier,

Thanks for your offer to help. Tell you what... I'll set you up as moderator for this forum and the "For Sale" forum. I just banned the latest chronic spammers and made a few more changes that should slow down the attack. Feel free to delete their messages.

RL

Once again... I apologize for all the spam postings that are getting through. Seems like a never-ending battle. I just cleaned out about 1500 bot registrations from the member list, hopefully I didn't delete any legitimate users. I also re-activated the visual confirmation for new members. If anyone has trouble registering, send me an email:

Thanks Roger - it was really necessary; last months the spam attack proportions were horrible...
