Hey folks,

as you probably saw this morning, and then again this afternoon, the board is under a heavy spam attack right now. I just deleted a few hundred newly registered accounts that were spam accounts (if I got any legitimately new users in there too, I apologize. Please try again once registration is re-enabled in the next few days).

For now, no one can register. I will be adding additional spam controls tomorrow and re-enable registration shortly.

established community members are still allowed to push their goods and services, no matter how sordid.

For some reason, this is probably my favorite context for the word sordid I've ever seen.

Would setting up an image code for registering not solve the problem?

i'm going to try it, but most likely no unless they've improved the mechanism from past versions I've tried. It wouldn't be any worse than the captcha though, which is the worst. The "what type of music does PIX put out" question was the most effective thing I've used for years, but for whatever reason, not anymore.
