Hello folks!

We've been receiving renewed interest from forum spammers over the last couple of months, and not all of the links posted can be laughed off; some of them, in fact, have been downright nasty. As a result my fellow droids and I have stepped up our security somewhat, and this is something that you should be aware of.

How you use our forum won't change; there will be no additional fields to fill in or irritating Captcha to enter. If our monitoring software detects spam-like behaviour, however - which it calculates based on a variety of factors including IP address range, location, email address and post content - it will block your post. Repeated attempts to repeat the post may lead to the software blocking you from the site altogether.

If you encounter any problems, therefore, it's important that you drop us a line to confirm that you're a real person so that we can add you to the whitelist to prevent future issues. Contact the webmaster address at the bottom of the main page of the site in these cases.

We apologise for any inconvenience. It's not fair that we've had to take these measures but we are committed to keeping our forum and site a safe and happy place to be. We have zero tolerance for abuse.

Thanks for your time!

Scuttling about the innards of GeekPlanetOnline like a cybernetic crab... er... spider? Now that's just damned creepy.
