    Please bear with us while we contact Acidus to work his magic to deal with this current influx of garbage.. Annoying as it is, I am sure it will be dealt with quite smartly!


    Thank-you!

    Thanks for the update. I suspected they were busy with that poorly translated spam from what seems the Far East. If "Sony" were part of the site it might have been worse. I did notice a gradual increase in solicitations in recent months until late when these spam seemed more like an elaborate (DOS) denial of service tactic. I'm not surprised - I'm sure the 'Admin' folks are not either, but properly annoyed - I sure would be. Thanks again and Merry Christmas!

    Oh! I would suggest members change and harden their passwords toward the difficult end for their security. Expect a slight lag time for changes to update, too.

    Excellent plan, Returned! I think I have had the same password since the day I discovered this site perhaps 13 or so years and 29,000 posts ago!

    OH MY GAWD... has it been that long?

    M!
