Combating Spammers and Upgrades Update
The number of people joining solely to post Spam links on the site has been growing. To combat these parasites, member profiles are now only viewable to logged in members of the site. I’m also spending more time pruning the member rolls to remove users who join the site to place Spam links within the site’s content. I’ll soon be adding a “Report” link (similar to the link within Forum posts) to all comments to make it easier for people to let me know when they stumble upon Spam. I thank everyone who takes the time to help me remove Spam from the site.
I’m continuing work on improving the performance and reliability of the site. Although people have reported much faster page loads over the last week, there are still a few changes I need to make, which should significantly improve the performance and reliability of the site even further. To implement these changes, I will need to take the site down for maintenance a few more times over the next few weeks. I will post notices before each planned outage. I appreciate your patience during these times.
