    As some of you have noticed and reported, we are experiencing an sudden influx of spam/faux members in the past couple of weeks. We're doing our best to correct the situation. In the meantime, if you see any suspicious posts please do click the "!" icon (inside the small triangle) located in the lower left part of the post. (If you put your mouse over the icon you'll see it says "report post").

    If the issue is something you see in a user's profile (ie an inappropriate link or album) please PM me, timk and/or denlo with that user's name (Please copy and paste, some of those names are whacky).

    Thank you very much to those who have already reported issues they've noticed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused anyone. We are working on fixing the problem.

    Sorry to hear that. It is really hard to keep those bots out once they get started. Is there a way to adjust settings so that new members need to be approved by a staff member before they can post?

    Tim, our tech maven, is enjoying himself at DLR right now. As soon as he gets back he'll see what he can do. I don't have the tech savvy to do anything about it myself. Agreed, those bots are a pain!!

    It's mostly under control now.
