Post Registration Suspended
Due to a large number of spammer attempts to register for the Forum, I have temporarily suspended registration.

I will look for additional ways to thwart these attempts and will resume registration in a couple of days.

Post Re: Registration Suspended
Addendum: I waited, but as soon as I un-suspended the forum, they started in again. I then tried using the Captcha Feature, but apparently, they have a way around that, so I put in a Q&A which requires them to have some specific knowledge, that most of us here should be able to answer and hopefully anyone legitimate wishing to register would know.

If any tries to register and is unable to do so, please contact me at the temporary address of
maikosht@windstream.net

Apparently, the spammers are not smart enough to know that all phpbb3 registrations require a valid email address and without it, they could never be activated, so it's a futile effort on their part anyhow.
