Closing this board to all posts from other people. I don't have time to babysit it, and phpBB authors have done absolutely nothing to prevent spam, or even make it kind of easy to eliminate. I'll be slowly doing a purge on all the spam posts, locking everything down. I'm sorry it has to come to this, but I just don't have time to babysit a board from spammers.

ok, so.. it seems that locking a forum still allows post replies. If that doesn't attract shit tons of spam that I don't have time to deal with, then fine, we'll leave it that way. Replies are OK. 30,000 spams is not OK.

Ultimately, although I really wanted to have a bulletin board, I don't *need* a bulletin board. All of the stuff that I have here, or want to have here, can be done in other fashions. PhpBB is not dealing with problems they've known about for years, so I'm going to, at some point, move off of it, I suspect. When I have time.
