Yes indeed, the site got spammed. And yes, you're also correct in that we got spammed about a week ago as well.

I manually removed 520 spam e-mails from Harms (such a fitting name!) - who was subscribed from a Chinese e-mail address at qq.com - and hopefully that was it. If I have missed any, please post the URL for them below (a search of the board does not yield any more). I also removed the spam from last week, although I think there were only about 30 of those.

We have upgraded security on the board and made a note about it on the main page. There is now a risk that some legitimate posters may not be able to post, as their IP addresses may have been blacklisted (it's why we had not implemented that degree of security previously), which I of course regret, but in the realm of things, better that than repeated spamming. And to give you an idea of "repeated", this is a list of IP addresses that have been rejected in the 3 days since we upgraded:

There's a function on the board that takes out certain "naughty" words like or ... except of course you'll never know what it takes out, as it just prints up those little red dots instead!!! :-)

I should add in fairness to Diana, lest people think her an evil-mouthed harlot (there are certain words it allows!! :-)) that the word that she used was an acronym for the content of the latest videogame spam that resulted in the 520 spams I removed, but is also used as an exclamatory statement!

<smile> I gave you clues... it was the acronym for the video game product that we were spammed about, and which was used a lot in that spam. Anticipating that there was a possibility of a repetition attempt, I caused the word to be replaced by the red dots. I also did the same for a few other words that might appear in ads for "world of ". I figure if the words don't show up in a "test run" then they won't bother pursuing it further... we hope! Of course, if they do, after I've removed them again, I'll add future words to the red dot list!
