    Do we know when the Spam and to my suprise Porn is going to be removed from the site. This is making the site even harder, no pun intended, to use and one I can only use when not in the office.

    Or is this a new way of uping your number of hits.

    In the next few weeks, we will be making Registration mandatory for using the Discussion Forum, which should have the benefit of stopping the majority of the spam that we are currently seeing.

    Due to a change in the nature of the spam yesterday, we’ve made registration on the forum mandatory as of today (earlier than planned).

    Please note – this doesn’t necessarily end all spam, but with luck it will at least dramatically slow it.

    Katie: I usually like my spam chopped and fried with scrambled eggs. And porn better enjoyed in private.
    Based on a forum posting that just came through, I believe after the mandatory registration, there is still work to be done.
    I know that some companies monitor keywords being transmitted over their networks, and what I just saw is going to get some folks in trouble (or at least cause them undue stress as they try to explain that they were really just on a six sigma web-site).

    No disagreement here. (Well, except I pretty much hate spam of all kinds!) As fast as we close one hole the spammers seem to be finding another.

    We are adding some extra protective measures this week. We hope they’ll do an even better job of preventing the postings.

    At least it drove some traffic here.
