Just wanted to let everyone know that there was another spam attack today...2 actually...and I imagine more will take place very soon...I'm trying to eliminate them now and enact actions that will prevent them from taking place...but if you get a message alerting you of a pm...and you find that you don't have a pm...it was probably spam, and it was deleted.
I am trying out reCaptcha. Its an image verification system that not only helps eliminate spam, but in the process of solving the captcha, you're helping to digitize old books for online use. Read about it here: http://recaptcha.net/
I may end up temporarily disabling PMs until I can get the problem under further control...if so I'll make a post here letting you all know...and wil also be setting the board up to only allow pms after at least 5 actual posts are made.
