No option to remember log-in? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I see no option to remember the log-in, as in a cookie. Is this disabled for security? Most other boards have it. Kind of a pain having to log in each time to see new messages.

Greetings Madengr:

I apologize for the inconvenience, but I have had to disable just about every convenience feature because of the exploitation by spammers and hackers. Believe it or not, I probably manually delete about 20-30 bogus registrations each day and 5-10 trash posts on the form. It is a constant battle, but otherwise the entire forum would be filled with useless crap that everyone would have to put up with in order to get useful inforomation.

There is a major new version of the forum software that is supposed to be released later this year that has significantly improved antispam and known malicious IP protection, so hopefully then I wil be able to relax the other protections. I have looked into other forum software, but from the discussions I have read, they all suffer from the same woes.

As with other types of terrorism, having to put up with and protect against cyberterrorism is a price we all pay in terms of inconvenience. Why the wolrd tolerates it is beyond my comprehension. I have personally advocated publically for the execution of the worst of them and the lifetime imprisonment of their family members. We need to make the price for such acts so great that nobody other than the truly insane would even consider engaging in it. :smt068

Thanks for writing, and take care.
