Post Spam Everywhere
What can we do about all of the spam the forums are getting?

Well what would really help is if there was an update to the website to fix the vulnerabilities. I am thinking that I might open a secondary website for the time being so that we can move to something we can manage better until admin man comes back and fixes this.

Well, I would certainly patronize your new site. I would be willing to open a forum, but opening a site... are the tutorials and whatnot public domain? I wouldn't want any legal trouble.

Good point Ford, but I think that a majority of the tutorials are either public domain are under some sort of free share-based license. I will look at starting up a new site and such, but it will take atleast 2 weeks.

We didn't want to create a new site, but it was getting hard to see any new posts people were making due to the level of spam.
