Good job cleaning up the hack! Is there a way to make the login secure?

Thanks for the hard work.

I use the forum a lot and enjoy the postings (by owners) even when I don't post myself.

No problem! I had to do it again a couple days ago :(
I wonder if there is a way to screen new applicants, make them subject to Moderator approval?

Some forum software allows you to require a period of time and an number of posts before allowing links to be posted.

Some software flags users who exceed a posting threshold - over 10 posts in 2 days, etc.

Looks like we have another one. Better to head it off at the pass.
