Any chance that you would consider implementing some measures to cut back on the spam posts? They're getting more and more rampant, distracting and clogging up/polluting the threads.

Perhaps a captcha (or whatever), or something to slow down forum registrations by bots or spammers?

As well as a "Report" button for individual posts in thread, to get clean up the irrelevant junk posts that have nothing to do with the topic of the thread; or even CM, HID devices, etc.
And to minimize any extra burden on you to review all the reports, you could just have them hidden by default, but allow the user who posted the comment to file a counter complaint for you to review to restore the comment (which won't happen with the spammers).

And perhaps users who have reached a certain threshold # number of posts would be exempt from automatic hiding if reported (actual contributing users aren't spamming the forum), and you could review just those cases- or perhaps even only hide the comment to the user who reported the contributing member.


Something would be nice anyway...


BTW, just wondering about you and your well-being/health... haven't seen you post in quite a while. I've been getting concerned for you. I hope and trust that all is well and you are merely taking a vacation, or you have re-focused yourself on a new project...
