This is a short public service note. We’ve been under quite an assault lately from spammers (in particular on the forum) and even hackers. I’ll post a roundup on what has been going on shortly—when I’m finished hardening our software against such activity.
The forum is pretty safe as far as hacking is concerned (cross your fingers), but I’ll be adding a spam protection module. If you get shaky service, that’ll be why.
There’s also the possibility that any spam protection might overshoot its goal and ban existing, legitimate users: our forum posts here are, after all rather link-rich. If you see any bad effect, please send me a message to [my given name] [dot] [my surname] [at-sign] [Google’s email service] [dot] [com].
