    Hello all,
    Due to the influx of spam accounts (almost 10,000 in a pending state), I have closed new registrations for a short time. Normally the spam accounts that get through the safeguards only last a couple of weeks at most, but this has been a couple of months. I’ve never seen a daily influx of this scale, so I’ve flipped the switch off for now.

    Nothing is wrong and nothing is broken. Just closing the gate for a moment. New members can still be added manually, just send me a message via the board contact if you want to get signed up.

    Thanks all,
    NJ

    Man, this stuff is getting out of hand! I had FB accuse me a couple of days ago of promoting spam because I liked a post that had a old kerosene lamp in it! What the hell? I still ain't figured that one out.

    Thanks for taking care of the forum, it's a lot of work, much needed but mostly unnoticed when it's done right. So thanks for doing it for everybody's benefit!
