You're welcome :P

But yeah I agree. Mike (admin) is kinda afk lately.

There's not that many, I'm picking away at them. I'll probably go back to admin approval on registration, but only if it represents less work. Larry was helping out with this and may be stil. About all you can do as a mod is delete, whereas I want to delete the user and all posts, even though it's usually only one per bogus user account. Yes, these are mildly annoying.

Thank you guys for marking them. No need to write anything on the report or to PM me.

Sorry not so involved these days. Got to get some major career hurdles behind me, then I can play for a bit!

How do you report spam posts? Is there a button I'm missing, or should we just send a PM or something?
