The spammers have found the board again. I'm getting a dozen or more requests for a name and password everyday from "web-bots". It's to the point where I can't tell whether a request is legitimate.

To get a username and password, simply send a note to tom[@]associatedcomputer.cc (leave out the brackets). Include your real name. I don't mind you changing your name after you're set up. But if I don't recognize you, I'll figure you're a spammer trying to get on the board. A brief note of introduction would be in order.

Today I updated the board software. It was supposed to have stronger controls for spammers. That was not the case. Within an hour I was removing bogus posts.

If you want to post, send me a note.

I did not have any trouble posting tonight Tom.

Thanks for staying on top of this issue.
