FYI everyone,

Lately the scurge of spam posters has grown considerably on forums across North America. We've been getting some of this too.

Sorry if any of you have been offended by a couple of postings/posters before Susan and I have had a chance to delete. We're upgrading security to bring the spammers under control. Travis, our webmaster has added a few security measures - which stopped most of the spammers.

Fewer but still some of these posters have gotten through. He is investigating further measures, and we hope to have those upgrades in place shortly.

Unfortunately these people appear to have nothing better to do than to look for new ways to be disruptive. The better news is that 3 of us are on the case. And one of us has a high level of computer skills.

Update: Further measures have now been taken.

This includes that AL staff now have to manually approve new members. Bit slower, but better than getting offensive posts.
