    Regarding the recent influx of spam

    dang, seems we've gotten nailed with spam lately!

    I'd rather drive a cobbled together rustbucket Ford than a brand new Chrysler anyday.

    Yeah, they've found a way to get past the registration captcha apparently (if there is one, I think there was). Hopefully there won't be a hostile takeover of the entire forum, but I'm sure Joe and Brian will figure it out.

      This will be about the 8th one I have been here though it seems. Maybe 3rd.

        Heard an admin on another forum complaining about the spam attacks there too. Sounds like they are attacking all over the place now.

          Regarding the recent influx of spam

          As everyone is aware, we've been getting a fair amount of spam over the last week or so. Usually this isn't that big of a deal, since our moderator and admin generally take care of it in a timely manner. Real life sometimes gets in the way, as it did with Pontiac6ksteawd. I know Cutlass has said this place doesn't have enough activity to warrant more than one active moderator (I haven't seen eurosport84 in a long time, and his member page says he hasn't logged in in more than three months), but I think we need another mod who is available during the day to take care of this garbage.

                    I will see if I can monitor from work. But that means asking special permission from the web admin for access. If he allows it, I will watch as much as I can.

                    BarnBurner, send a PM over to Cutlass and see if he has the registration software on. Thats the only thing I can think of.

                          Glad to hear you're getting things under control, thanks Brian. Oh and I'd tend to say msnweather is also a spammer, just because of all of the recent influx of spammers and the fact that usually when someone's new they'll post a legitimate question or explination about their car.
