As you may be aware, UTM was hit by a wave of spam attacks yesterday. I've updated the board software to the latest version, and I've added some extra anti-spam hoops to jump through to register new accounts. Hopefully it'll be enough to ward off any further intruders – but if not, there are a few other options I can look into. Thanks for your patience and help, everyone!

Damn near felt like we were being Assimilated into their collective...

I think we've got another Spammer, this member's posts make absolutely no sense and I have no idea where the Links go, because I ain't clicking on them, so I leave it up to James and those he has bestowed power to to judge...

You know the economy would be a lot better if these spammers would quit wasting everybody's time and go out and get a real job.
