    I've been scratching my head for MONTHS how spammers kept finding a way in.  I was the only one moderating it and it just got to be too much.  If i upped the spam control and IP bans, a lot of people couldn't get to the site.

    So what did I do?  I put it back to a forum.  The spam was significantly less when we had a forum and it was a lot less maintenance.

    All previous registrations are good, some may need to re-register.

    Pardon the mess while I clean things up.

    Having a Social-based site was a GREAT idea I think.  I just don't think that the amount of viagra offers and handbag closeouts were worth the hassle. 

    So here we are again.

    And I've enabled soundcloud for posts.  Wheeee!
