    Lots of spam, forum on the way out?

    Getting a lot of spam now, are we on the slippery slope of the forum being unusable soon?

    Could be wrong, but spamming seemed to coincide with the doomsday preppers from another site that recently posted telling us this forum was dead in the water and to jump ship.
    Just block the f@#kers.

    Lots?! Nah, no, only handful of created harmless, made up, bogus spam designed to cause panic & try to have folk jump ship.

    Don't fall for the other sites game. Site still remains useable.

    The Captain is off the bridge, but auto-pilot and auto (real) spam filters been running well for ages and to at least November.

    "13709 Spammers Denied Registration".
    "1056 Spammy Posts Automatically Moderated".

    Kind Offers have been made to owner Andy for continuation of this site...

    Use the IGNORE feature on the profile of pretend spammers...

    By all means have or line up other options. let's see what winter brings.

    Around 2000 registered users here and > 29000 posts from the very beginning of the MT/FZ-10 Launch, this site is a gold mine.

    It isnt the us from fz10 .org doing the spam, lol. Nobody is updating the security settings for this website. Nobody has uploaded the many vbulletin security patches that have been released since last year when the owner went AWOL. These are facts.

    Forums that don't have up to date security patches are wide open for spam software to take ahold.

    This domain expires on November 16th. The domain company will probably 30 days grace, and then this entire website will disappear by January.

    I have sent the owner multiple messages offering to buy this forum and update it. No replies. He hasn't even logged in since last year.

    Do you seriously believe that the spam is coming from the other fz10 forum? Do you wear tin foil on your head, too? Websites that do not update their security patches get attacked by spammers. Last years spam settings for vbulletin have been compromised, and nobody is here to update the changes.

    What will you do when you come to login in January and there is nothing here?
