As you may have noticed yesterday and today, we've been updating the forum to a newer version.
There was a security hole in the old version that needed immediate patching. Rest assured that none of your data was compromised. (Neither was ours.)
This new version of the forum also allows us to force new users to fill in a captcha, so hopefully that means the end for spammers. If it doesn't, we'll also have new users activate their account with a link sent to them via email.
If you see or notice anything weird because of the upgrade, let me know
