BOOM
The forum DB appeared to have crashed (which is why the forum's been unavailable for the last few weeks). Unfortunately the DB was unrecoverable, and the last backup I had was from mid 2013... so unfortunately, any posts since then have been lost. Probably not too much, since things have been fairly quiet for a while. I will get a regular backup in place!  :-[

The forum is regularly being hit by spam. Fake passports and boobies, and links to extremely nasty pr0n. We need more mods in different timezones to keep an eye on things. The spammers need to be banned. Maybe users should have to fill in a captcha to become forum members. I would suggest that certain keywords trigger an automatic ban.

Hey, thanks for keeping an eye on things. I will have a look at the anti-spam plugins, they probably need updating. I usually get most of the spam pretty quickly, but have been away so not been on top of it. This particular forum software can be a bit problematic as it's fairly popular, so the spammers like it.

Holiday season is the best time to catch moderators not paying attention :P

Re: BOOM
I've tweaked one of the anti-spam mods... hopefully that'll discourage them now

The spammer is posting in French now to dodge the filters. Removed.

Re: BOOM
Got some more spam. It consisted mostly of smiley faces. I suspect that this is how Russian Cyrillic is rendered in the current character set.
