SPAM is increasing creeping into other areas as well.   We need to do something before we lose this board.   If the board requires a username and password that may solve some of the problem, however, people with legitimate questions will  probably not take the time to post if they have to create an ID etc.    It is getting pretty bad

Maybe it's me, but the legitimate traffic seems to be down, too.  I've only been posting since May 2006 or so.  Is it a seasonal thing?  It's a great site, I just hope it can be fixed, because it's maybe not broken, but "sick".

First of all, I'm truly flattered.
 
Second, just killed my first spam.  Wow!  I feel powerful!  Since it's well-known that absolute power corrupts absolutely, I shouldn't fear or hide my corruption, right?  After all, it's perfectly natural....
 
In all seriousness, I'm very flattered and hope to kill as little as possible.  Being a civil libertarian, I really don't want to edit/kill anything arguably on-topic and hope that free exchange of ideas continues to happen here.
 
Best regards.

I'm flattered as well.  One final and quick request.  Could you add a "spam" or "trash" forum.  Rather than delete apparent spam, I'd rather move it.  That way, if I make a mistake, we can simply move it back.
 
Thanks again for the vote of confidence (although I'm not sure about this Ivey guy Wink ).
