I am going to temporarily (for a week or two) disable guest posting in "Transfusion Development". The bots are getting to be annoying.

gah, it looks like they are persistent bastards. I've had to delete out over 15 spammer user accounts over the weekend and yesterday.

I've sent Willis IRC messages about it, but he's not responded (probably busy with work), I might end up suspending new user accounts entirely until it get's worked out.

Just enable server activation on the accounts, that way you can inspect them before sending them an approval (with email), so that'll really help in weeding out even the people who wouldn't have otherwise posted here.

Just a few tips :)

Yeah, that sounds like a plan.

Incidentally, I apologize for my absence from here as of late. I was upgrading an old Windows XP box to Fedora 14. I now understand the line from The Exorcist about exorcism taking months and almost killing you, it certainly seemed that way when I was clearing away Windows... :banghead:
