We've been under constant assault by spammers for the past month or so - over 1700 attempted registrations in the last month alone.  We've managed to block all of them, but it is only a matter of time and effort before the site is breached.   To that end, I'm tightening the screws on the server, installing a separate forum firewall, and attempting to block those spammers from even reaching, much less the forums. 

All of that said, if you find yourself blocked, please email me immediately - [email protected]

I'll be able to get you unstuck from the firewall and tune it so it doesn't happen again.
