Site News

As with any site that gets a lot of postings from our members and guests, we get our fair share of spam. We have a number of ways of dealing with spam, from the manual to the automated, but the best thing that you can do, should you come across The Blight in the forums or articles, is use is hover over the little red flag and report it. 5 seconds of work and you've made someone else's day that little bit brighter.
