    Congrats Eric and crew!

    We won't mention that member #500 was a spammer named Lillana er something, who was promoting orthodontics in the UK. (Quite an uphill battle she has too, from what I've seen.)

    We had a wave of spammers sign up last night and this morning.

    I deleted several of them but there were a couple accounts that I wasn't sure about. I will have to zap them if they post anything goofy.

    If you build it they will come.
    The more popular this website becomes the more spammers will attempt to drop links. It's an occupational hazard for forum admins. :)

    We have tools to thwart them but you can never stop them all.

    You might as well change your name, go off grid, and move.

    Ship me all your cigars & booze first, though. You don't want to be weighed down when you need to stay mobile.

    No... a spammer cannot make a post in and of itself a hazard, they are just here to drop links. Now... I would not recommend clicking on the links they leave behind, yet simply opening up the post is no danger at all.
