    Over the last several days we've been hit with dozens of spam accounts that have somehow managed to get past our spam filters. They have mostly been posting in the Cover Design forum with links that might not be visible for most members, making them look like empty posts.

    For the time being we've been deleting them one by one, which only takes about thirty seconds, while Black Dragon has been working on finding a technical solution in the software. Bear with us and just ignore them.

    I'll ignore them; I'm good at that. In fact, I'm sometimes known as an ignoramus.
