Many of you may have noticed that there has been a lot of spam posted on this forum recently by spambots. I went through and deleted all of the posts and spam users, and I just installed several PHPBB mods that will hopefully take care of the issue.
I'm not sure if it will work yet (we'll wait and see). If you notice any strange bugs / problems with the forum in the meantime, it might be a side effect of the mods. Let me know if anything weird happens!
Cross your fingers -- hopefully the spam issues will now be resolved.
