    This forum is getting spammed, bad.

    When I first bought my ILX, there were a decent amount of people who would visit this site. Now it seems pretty dead, and there seem to be a lot of fake users, maybe even bots, that are posting spam about the Hunger Games, or other movies.

    So where has everyone else been going?

    Thank you for letting us know about the spam.

    I have cleaned up most of the forum spam and made sure to ban their IP addresses. As where where the members have gone, unfortunately, I cannot provide you with an answer for that.

    Thank you for sticking by us.

    Hard to get spammed in forums that require posts accepted by moderators imo. Just my $0.02

    Moderators are a volunteer position and approving new members threads would require extra work load to them. We can look at this option if it looks like things are getting out of hand.

    I have removed the 1 spammer that caused quite a few posts, and all is well again.

    If you see any more spam, please use the report post function and we'll look into it.

    Thanks,
