    Busy is an understatement (and all of this on a sick day no less ).

    I believe I've finally gotten ahead of the spammers, but I have had to close new registrations. After manually reviewing the past 7 days registrations I've banned over 30 accounts. Seems vBulletin's spam filter software isn't nearly as good as previous versions. Hopefully, we'll find a resolution soon.

    Thanks much.

    There is nothing more important than this one day.

    Just hit the "Report post" icon at the lower left corner instead of posting replies in the thread. It will at least make the cleanup a little easier.

    Well, just know we all appreciate all the work you do around here. It does not go unnoticed! (sure glad I scored one of those fake drivers licenses quickly, but I missed out on the hardy men's underwear )

    LOL! That's OK, Ken. I think Chuck already picked up a few extras for you.

    I actually feel guilty reporting the posts when I do. I don't want to add any more work to Kristi but I supposed it's better than just answering the posts with insults to bots that won't benefit from the abuse. That would be more fun though.

    I think living with my dog(s) all my life has made me understand why they enjoy barking at unwelcome visitors.

    I was quite amazed at all the deletions Kristi had to do... damn things are EVERYWHERE!

    Of course, the part of Kristi's comment that the spam filter software isn't nearly as good as previous versions is equally scary. You'd think and hope the newer software would be better and improve things... not always the case.

    Many thanks to you, Kristi, for your most outstanding and diligent efforts!
