I got fed up with all the spam on this forum. And I sent out quite a few emails trying to track down the admins/moderators, but never had any luck. So...today I finally took it upon myself to hack the site and give myself moderator access...

I think I got rid of all the spam messages and the user accounts that posted them. Hopefully the site is usable now.

And just in case it needs to be said - I wasn't trying to piss anybody off by hacking this site. I only did what I did to try to make it usable again, not for any malicious reasons. I'm guessing the original admins/moderators are long gone at this point. But if I'm wrong and an admin wants me to leave the site alone, please just send me an email and I'll be happy to go away. I'm not looking to cause any trouble (or to get into trouble...) Smile

No problem. I don't check this place often. Thanks for cleaning up.

I made you a moderator. Laughing
