We've recently updated the board to the newest version. Our site has been getting hit with large amounts of SPAM registrations and we had to run the update to prevent further attacks on our site.

We apologize for not making any announcements and we hope that this may clear up some other issues we've been having as well.

Thank you for your understanding.

When did this happen? And what effect has it/could it had/have? I have noticed absolutely no difference.
If not for my attempts to be a "good Christian" (i.e. someone who follows what Jesus taught and not what the Pauline Epistles taught), I doubt I'd be an orthodox Jew right now. Shemmy

There are still components which are being changed while we rebuild the post content in the database as well as clean up.

No new features other than a better captcha system to prevent bot registrations.

Will I be able to log in without using a proxy like I am now?
Proxy is kinda driving me mad as it has a lot of ads

Thank you, Silent J, for taking such good care of these boards for all our entertainment and pleasure. If I haven't said this in the past, I really appreciate it.

I am tolerated, not loved. You, on the other hand, I believe are truly loved.

Woah.

Its a registration issue- they keep signing up but we don't validate the accounts to allow the bots to post.
If I have interesting things on the walls, no one will notice how dirty the floors are - right?

Why are you using a proxy? Why not use one which does not have any ads?

I thought I was the one tolerated. The dissent is usually tolerated, not the majority.

Lol. I'll take it into account. You hate borat???? :o The funniest person on earth Borat? I think you need an extra shaat-nez test or something. Have you seen his shows?

I thought the funniest person on earth was less assailable. Would you be offended if I used Rambam's pic as my avatar?
