Dec. 2012 spam attack - the nuclear option

Post by charles » Thu Dec 27, 2012 6:07 pm

Wow, I went away for a few days and there was a huge spam attack on the forum with pages of spam on every forum.

There was so much I had to invoke "the nuclear option" and delete all users who registered to the forum after Dec. 20, 2012. It would have taken days to remove the spam manually.

I skimmed the user list that I pruned from the forum and I believe all of them were spam accounts - however, if you did register for the forum after Dec. 20, 2012 and had your account nuked, please accept my apologies as you will have to register your account again.
