Hi Guys.

Yeah, I'm back. Was just telling Wererstritchy I've had a really bad run with my health lately. Cold virus 3 weeks ago, neck vertibrae out of alingment a fortnight ago and I'm just getting over some kind of stomach pain (infection, or whatever - the doctors didn't really give me a clear idea of the problem).

I've just now cleared up some spam. Yes, please keep flagging spam posts without replying to the actual post. Also, if there's a sudden rash of spam please feel welcome to PM me so that I know about it sooner. The spammers seem to know that when the cat's away the mice will play. Just subsitite foxaroo for cat, and spammers for mice.

It might be an idea to put that in your signature. "If you see a spammer, please flag the topic and move on. If the spamming is getting rather bad, PM me, and I'll notice this faster." or something?

The only difference is that I now have a responsibility to watch over the forum and where possible curb spam and other innapropriate behavior. Health problems have interfered with this just over the last few weeks, but I have deleted a few accounts created by spammers after checking that there were no legitimate posts on the same usernames.

I've also found that the firewall on my computer at work blocks some functions, and nor does the iPhone work well with the current forum engine either. It looks like I have best control only when I'm at home.

(Like for example I'm unable to add another post to the Countdown thread because the scroll-down bar is missing when I'm using Furstralia on my work PC)
