Thank you Nereid for all the clean up you have done.

I "assume" it was you.

I prefer Nereid, but you may choose any other (on the internet, who can say?).

Uh oh, spammers are getting through...hopefully hopefully the 'DaAPOD' forum won't get ruined like the Cafe did. :(

Sadly, spammers can always get through.

What we can do is work to ensure that their spam is gone within hours (at most), and that they are gone, permanently.

Hopefully, their impact on the objectives of this forum, and the desire of members to continue to read and write here, will be minimal.

In the meantime, what did you think of today's APOD?

[Edit (28 Oct 2006): posts discussing the 12 Oct APOD have been moved here.]

hey Nereid, is there some script running killing spam threads? I've noticed few spam threads and logged in to kill them, but they were no longer present. and forum was not showing anyone else browsing this forum. or who was that? I bet whoever it was he is still here. EDIT: Nereid send me PM where (s)he explains that it takes him (her ?) less then 1 minute to kill spam and log out, in case anyone would like to know.
