There has been an upsurge in ridiculous postings...I can't even say it's SPAM as they aren't advertising anything....just spewing....nothing.

If you see such messages (I'm not talking about a message from Carney you think is inane and should be removed) please pm me so I can get it off the board ASAP.

Thanks,

Aaron

It looks like I'm going to have to move to a platform where I approve accounts - so people will need to set up with real e-mail addresses. Kinda sad - but hopefully will end the STUPID spam!

Sort of ironic - you want to encourage (real) accounts and discourage (spam) accounts at the same time.  

It's impossible to search for this message board on Google, yet spammers seem to find it.  They probably search for any message board sponsored by the same host.

Anyhow, thanks again for your work, Maroon, in maintaining this site and for the effort you put in.  It is not only a sports forum, but also is becoming the independent political voice of Lafayette College!

Thanks a lot!

There are a lot of things I could do to improve this board but I'm short on dinero (divorce...etc...won't bore you with the saga). BUT - my goal is and always has been to

1) Get a domain name that's easy to find
2) MAKE SURE THESE STUPID ADS ARE GONE!!
3) Get it placed better in Google - which I know some tricks about.

Hopefully within six months.

Thanks again,

Aaron
