Spam has pretty much killed this forum.  >:(


 I have checked 2 to 3 times per week over the past  3 weeks and there is very little activity. Too bad, this has  been a really nice way to meet and greet other zendrummers.
I posted a suggestion a few weeks ago, everyone who wants in to this board should have to register and then needs admin review and approval before they can post. I just recently joined an auto forum and was required to register then waited 3 or 4 days for approval before I was able to post. They have ZERO spam.
Can't that be done here, to try and rescue this forum?   ???
I know nothing about the technical details, but someone here can find out from someone here: http://www.massmotoringclub.com/

I'm just sayin'...........   :-\

Isn't it nice not to see the spam notifications every day from idiots with no purpose in life except to ruin our forum?
Now if all YOU WORTHWHILE HUMANS would post again we could keep this knowledge base going without having to move.
Newbies can ask their questions through me and I will be happy to post them up myself.
All you veterans can now post again without reservation.
Screw the terrorists. Be proactive Techno-Tribe!!!

I don't think you'll lack for people willing to help out cleaning our tribal grounds if needed.  How can we help?

If you're already a member, then just please post as usual.
Nobody new can post. Geo has shut that down for good.
That sucks because a Forum is supposed to be for everybody to participate.
BUT, now at least- all of YOU guys can communicate together again AND
the spammer rat can not get through.
I can't tell you how many people say they read every post here before they decide.
It's this community that makes the Zendrum different than anything else and I thank you all for hanging in there.

This is a re-post from the Chat section..

Greetings fellow Zendrummers.

I thought that I would take a sec and post about this forum.  This is a great community and we have had a couple of idiots ruin our hang in the recent past.  As a result, Inspector 109 now adds the title of "bouncer" to his position.  No new members will be allowed to just "join" our community.  They will all need to go through David.

Everyone should take a sec and thank David for this.  He is putting all of the responsibility on his own shoulders.

Bottom line is this..... I encourage everyone to get back into this forum and start talking again.  This is a great resource and it should be supported by our activity.

Cheers,
John
