Hi Scott, I enjoy this resource you provide and appreciate the careful moderation.
I do hope you will be able to find an automated foolproof "spam fighter" to ease your burden.
I assume it's that [!] on Post's lower right corner to alert you if a spammer squeezes in.
This 'topic' or board is a little confusing as you state:
"...2. If you have only posted one (1) message to the forum please take a moment to respond to this post and say hi."
But then there is no "Reply" button since "You cannot reply to topics in this forum..."
Your other boards have the familiar "Quote", "Post Reply" and "New Topic" which I understand.
