It seems like the spam is getting more frequent on this board, and I sincerely apologize for the lewd post that was made by a spammer late last night.  That account and topic has been removed.  I already require CAPTCHA set to the most stringent levels in order to register on the site, but it looks like that might not be enough to stop the spamming.  If it continues, I'll have to move to manual approval of accounts.

Once again, I apologize.

Dang, I missed it. Grin
I do manual reg myself and delete 99% of the regs. I also require a valid email addy before the reg can go thru.

Well, after removing three additional accounts that were obvious spammers, including one just minutes ago, I've now set up the forums to require explicit approval of new members.  It's a shame that it's necessary, but that seems to be the way of the Interwebs...
