The board was attacked by spam bots today. Lots of them.

 

The RAW staff apologizes to anyone who may have been offended by the graphic images that one of them posted in multiple threads. It should all be removed now, if we missed any please flag the post for us.

 

We also apologize for the posts of random symbols and links to nowhere we got.

 

For the time being, new user registration has been suspended, and that should stop the problem for the time being until we locate the source of the spam, and set up some new measures to deal with future attacks.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding in the face of porn and nonsense.

 

:rolleyes:

 

UPDATE! OCT. 14th

 

We're trying a different way of registration for new members. So, new member registration is open again.

 

We might see some spam get through, if any of you guys see this pop up on the boards please don't ignore it, REPORT the post for us please so we can remove it. There is a REPORT button on the bottom of every post and it's designed so you can flag a post for us if you see it before we do.

 

Software has been updated, and we're tinkering with some new ways of dealing with spam attacks, and we'll only know if they work by opening registration again.

 

Please be patient and bear with us if there are some bumps in the road.

 

THANK YOU!!

I'd also like to add that we really appreciate everyone helping us out with the last round of attacks.

Root Admin Note: Also would like to send out a big thanks to Heather (our in-house RAW web genius) for setting our ship to rights.
