Lots of spam lately. I reinstated the StopForumSpam system. Gunda, you had problems with it last time I did that so let me know if they reemerge and I'll do something.

Sorry about that spam flood today. It came just as I was boarding a plane and I couldn't touch it until I landed (the Android browser doesn't work with the admin panel here). It's dealt with, and I made some changes so new users need to be approved.

I will have to change my email filters. I'm getting a personal email every time someone makes an account.

Didn't take much time at all. It just happened at a bad time when I was visiting Cartagena. Sorry about that.
