i think with enough hassling he got some admin powers... im sure it wasnt to bad of a task seeing as none of the REAL admins other than LWW care much about this site. just pass the power and leave lol.

Man... I made one freaking small change to allow "gmail" users to sign up, and we're getting flooded w/ spammers again. I have turned back on the "Aggressive Email Banning" again.

I did & they aren't posting because they can't... but there's about 20+ a day signing up. It just sucks that REAL people trying to sign up have to jump through hoops just to post.

i still like the idea that posters have to post in one existing thread before they can start a new one.

So they can post an ad for v-i-a-g-r-a in an existing thread and then start posting away?

LWW? where is he? I was the only one using the site and deleting spam every day until NismoPick joined the administrators.

Because we usually delete those posts. It happened a lot about a month ago... Two year old threads would get spam-ified.
