Spammers
« on: September 08, 2017, 08:29:55 AM »
Hi All,
I had to suspend the site due to spammers attacking it.  The site may go up and down a bit if I need to work more on the problem.

  Thanks!

It's a real issue with Simple Machines, unfortunately. Give this site a try, it might help to keep them at bay:

I am already using their software.  It works great to keep the spammers out of the forum, but I was still sending a welcoming message to the spammers and that is what my ISP complained about.

I made some changes.
