Hey guys.  To help keep out the people that like to do DoS attacks, we're gonna make many parts of the forum only visible when you log in, and only to people who have at least one post.  Hopefully this helps us identify who is trying to do DoS attacks when they do happen.  Sorry if this is a pain.

Not at all.  Do what you gotta do. I'm on other boards that do that--it's not a problem.
"You and I remember Budapest very differently."

"I like feet."

"Am I being tangible? ...Gary?"

"How quickly can we buy this building?"

"More drinking. Less feeling."

"Whatever just happened, blame it on the pig."

Sounds good to me ;D
I once thought I was an immortal Goa'uld, but as it turned out I'm just a confused mortal.

It's a work-in-progress, but we're getting there.

No idea who does it... other than people who do it just because they can (I assume they would do it to any forum/ website the can).

Yep, one of my orchid boards gets spam like you wouldn't believe; the other gets DDOS attacks periodically.  Clearly there are ppl out there with too much time on their hands.  >:(

Yep. You wouldn't believe the fights people get into over nomenclature.  ;)  (the rest of us just sit back with wine and popcorn and watch. I'm told the daylily hybridizers are even worse.)

And of course there're other things, like, "hey, anyone know what this bug is?" "EWWWWW-!"  Or, "can anyone tell me the name of this hybrid?" "well, there are about 125,000 named hybrids out there, so.... no."   And lots of pictures.  You know, stuff like that. ;D
