Unfortunately, the number of spambots attempting to post to the forum is getting out of hand.  Even though each one is denied by the CAPTCHA system, just allowing the guest posting is causing a large overhead.  At this time, I cannot allocate more resources to the forum.  To preserve its usefulness, I am turning off guest posting at this time.

My apologies.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Unfortunate but necessary.  We had to do the same thing over on www.prosbb.com, an arrowhead site I am a mod on . . . we just had to many spammers, many of them from porn sites, posting pictures and links to nasty stuff on what is supposed to be a family friendly forum.  Guests can still view some categories, but have to register to post.

Andrew, I for one appreciate all you do to keep this site so user friendly.  I hope Menard will go ahead and register, I will miss his participation if he doesn't.

Even tiny sites like mine get spambotted, I have always kept registration on as I don't have time to 24/7 police my forum and I hate spammers.  I still get the manual registers, I left some up that had no links, but if they add links I delete them.  I've even caught a guy from Israel who just google searches for the SMF registration page, registers for over 200 sites manually (as I am that far back) and then returns a day later to try to add links to the sig line of the account he made.  He did this to me four times.  I can't imagine how bad it would get were I to get popular by some fluke.

We haven't heard from Menard since registering has been enabled.

Come on Menard...  You know you want to register!

As of this time, guests are again able to post.  I worked with the server hosting company to do everything we could, and I am also going to implement a long term solution in the very near future (this week, I hope).

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
