Hi all. To anyone who still visits this forum periodically—I've decided to disable new account registrations to stop spam. We don't get new members anymore, and in the past few years it seems that every single one of the accounts that did register has been a spam bot. The insanely high view counts on most of the publicly visible topics as indicators of how much spam traffic we get.
In addition to this, I also deleted several hundred spam posts on various recent topics. Here's to spam-free forum browsing.
