Hello, everybody.

As you have probably noticed, we have suffered a massive Spambot attack in this subforum. 60 pages worth of Spambot posts have been made over the past several hours. I believe we have banned most or hopefully all of the bots, but the clean-up is going to take some time. Please be patient. I would also ask that you not report any more of the spambot threads, as this will lengthen the time it will take for us to clean them up.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience, and the mod team will be discussing options for preventing this sort of attack in the future.

Go-bo Gadget Cleanup!

Update: This should be taken care of. Apologies for the mess, folks. I had to use some bulk-deletion tools so if I accidentally got rid of any real threads please let me know and I'll try to bring them back.
