Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you all know that we had to change the permissions for guests to the forum because of spam we have been getting lately.  It seems that if we allow guests to post replies or post new topics we get spammed to no end. 

So we have had to disable posting of any kind for guests, and limit that to forum members. 

Membership is free, we just have to have you jump through a captcha hoop to make sure you're not a bot, and then you are free to post or reply. 

We don't sell emails, but we have to do it this way, or the forums will just suck for all involved.

And I'm sorry I had accidentally changed the forums to "read only".  That was dumb.  Should be fixed now.

You weren't alone. I too thought my enthusiasm had earned a "time out" from a moderator.
