Yo, SMFs,

I realize there has been an upswing in spam on this board. For that, I sincerely apologize, and I'll be taking steps to stop it. Here's the deal...

There are currently over 7000 names on the Slamboard member's list. In the name of stopping (or at least slowing down) the spam, I'm taking a chainsaw to the list.

- If an account has been inactive for more than a year, it's gone.

- If a member has a nonsensical email address or user name - gone. (Who knows - maybe your name really is 'Ahtvowemujbnidlrnsuy' and your email really is '' Somehow, I don't buy it, though.)

This is, of course, qualified by the fact that if I recognize good members who haven't posted in a while, they won't be wiped.

- If you've been a member for a few years and haven't posted anything, I'm going to delete you. These are like ticking time bombs that could release spam at any time.

If you know someone who's account has been blown away accidentally, tell them that Webbie says he's sorry and to register again and post right away so I can tell they're real people.

Thank you for your kind attention. Carry on...

- D
