We had a good run.
The forums have been officially shut down. After nearly three years of leaving them open to spam-bots we have gathered more data than we could ever possibly dream of regarding how spam bots function. The bandwidth alone, however, was obscene. It got to the point where hundreds of gigabytes of literally just mindless text messages involving Viagra or BBWs was being thrown about every day. And for what? For a tiny forum that nobody uses, self included.
In a nutshell, we have so much information on the life cycle of spam bots, we are confident that our plugin will continue to stop it in its tracks (when properly configured) for the forseeable future.
Just install it, activate it, and forget about it.
