#5525 Hey everyone! I received a spam message in a pm overnight. This is a new tactic. It was brought to my attention through the pm reporting system that I wasn't the only one to receive it which I figured was the case. If you get spam in a pm please report it and don't simply delete it. That way we can take care of the user and prevent repeat offenders. Hope everyone is having a great Easter holiday! Thank you to everyone that contributes to the forum! We've got some really good threads going! Keep up the good work, especially you reloaders! :D Take care everyone!

Interesting. Thanks for the input! I might call our admin and see what we can do about it. I'm getting sick of the spam. I spend almost an hour daily just deleting shit. The current format was chosen to start with for the cost but maybe we're big enough now where it would be worth selling ad space and upgrading. We'll see.

#5545 I'd rather see relevant advertising at this website than all the bolshevik spam crap every morning.

#5547 A note on Spam as the board creator/owner.

First of all, my greatest thanks to MANual_puller. Since the beginning he has been our only moderator and board master. He has dealt with the brunt of it.

This is a concern of mine as well. Part of the challenge is that there is not one dollar of revenue for this site. I fronted the development in pure support of the cartridge and getting involved. This has given me some opportunity to get involved with the industry where very soon some money may be available to upgrade the site. Soon is a relative term.

For now; we appreciate your patience and understanding. We will clean up as quickly as it comes around.

Thanks to all that participate in the site.
