spam / updates

hey all,

i'm aware we have a spam problem. i've attempted to restrict as much as possible with permissions but some still slip through the cracks. there is an updated forum software package i need to install, plus some more advanced anti-spam add-ons, which i will get too soonish. i mean, four of us post here and i have 14k users. i know, and i'm trying. please bear with me and continue to let me know if you get inundated.
