Out of the Blue

More hard work by Frans today resulted in some further improvements around here, and some account cleanup on the forums, where a handful of spam posts had shown up. These were pruned as were their accounts, along with a staggering 20,000-some accounts registered by spam bots that hadn't managed to make any posts. Prevention being the best cure, the tireless Frans then implemented a Captcha system to thwart such automated sign-ups. No word on any internet pharmacies or ED drug manufacturers have gone out of business as a result.

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
