I’ve been trying to stay on top of the spam problem with the forums, but the spammers are fighting harder and harder every day. I delete 25 spam posts and 50 more spring up right away. The last 500 or so posts have come from spammers.
And I understand why there haven’t been many legit posts lately; it’s hard to swim through all that crap.
The forums are unusable in their current state and all the porn and stuff looks really bad for the site. So I’ve taken the forums down until we can get something more stable in there. All of the old user and post data is still in there and should be available again when (if) the forums go live.
Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for your understanding.
