We are no longer using 2checkout as a payment gateway due to the fact we take credit cards directly. All 2CO users have been re assigned to "credit card". You can still however select paypal or mail in payment from the invoice drop down menu. Thank you!

Just a quick note to let you know we are taking the recent outbreak of spam very seriously and are looking in to methods to slow it down.

If you do a few google searches this is a big problem recently with all forum/blog/CMS style software.

I believe we should be able to complete the investigation by sometime this weekend. This doesn't necessarily mean we will have a routine in order that will zap real humans at the door of your board in a few days, but there might be ways to make it more labor intensive for spammers to sign up. I imagine if they only get paid a few cents per injected link that spending more than a minute and having to think a little would send them to easier targets. This will mean more registration questions/tricks but it is a small price to pay to keep the gold diggers away.
