Askimet activated
#1
I've activated a program called Askimet to hopefully control any future spam on this board that maybe posted by spam bots. This program identifies and hides spam posts and will ban anyone who posts more than 3 spam messages it can identify.

If a spam post does get through, please report it by using the Report button on the post and we'll deal with it ASAP.

And let me take the time to tell you that if you do spot a spam post, DON'T EVER CLICK ON ANY LINK IN THAT POST. They might be scams and they might put viruses and key loggers on your computer. If you get a spam PM be sure to forward it to me so I may deal with them.

If you have any questions, please post them here.

Yeah, I got an important question, what happens if it bans a regular member by accident or identifies a otherwise normal post as spam?

Posts can be unmarked as spam (but only Starpaul20 can do that). Any resulting bans can of course can be lifted. I've also been told that users can be ignored by the system, so presumably any unfortunate user won't have to worry.
