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.
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.
Thanks for writing, and take care.
