    Thank you to those who have been using the Report Post buttons. This site has a decent spam blocker and registration filter thanks to @DukeofRealms, but still occasionally things slip through he cracks or someone continues to bump their own thread which is hard for the system to detect. So it is much appreciated when people use these buttons and I hope people feel comfortable using them when needed.

    I mostly wanted to post this both to say thanks and to affirm that I am reviewing the issues as they come up so it is not wasted effort.

    @mexidotco Thanks for noticing this. I removed all of the spam and banned the users. I am going to look at enhancing the registration process today. Not sure how these people are getting through since I have two spam filters running currently.
