Spambots yay!

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

As you might have noticed, this board got slammed by Kanji-spouting bots this weekend. I think I've pruned away most of the offending stuff, but there are still a few database issues I may have to fix by hand. (Some deleted posts got orphaned and are still showing up in the forum index, for example.)

I hope this didn't happen, but it's possible that some of the monkeying around I did may have deactivated or deleted legit accounts. If you suddenly find that you can't login or post, shoot me an email via the "Contact Us" page to let me know. You may have to just create a new account. Apologies to anyone if that turns out to be the case.
