Part of our difficulty is that our site now shows up on site rankings, so people think it's worthwhile to spend time here manually spamming the board (we always had pretty good protection against spam bots). Reaching a critical mass is apparently a mixed blessing...

I think I agree with you before limit first time posts. What a pain.

Missed this too. Sheesh. We don't say thank you enough John, every other Cobalt site sucked before you created this one.

I am pretty tech savvy and if you need a general I'm here for you. Happy to mod. I'm sure the same of BB (we just have to send him a laptop, although he is probably more proficient on that phone than I am at the pentagon).

If we get too busy I think that will be a good idea. For now, I just have to check daily and spend a few minutes cleaning up when a Russian spammer jumps on.

Just yell John when you need help. I'm never logged off.lol So I check it often just to see if anything new is going on. It's good to see it staying active. Thanks again for your support :-)

My goal was to put good systems in place that mostly ran themselves, and the ads pay for the hosting. In a nutshell, if you don't use an ad-blocker or turn it off for this site, I think this will be pretty easy to keep going.
