Big thanks to JJ for taking his personal time to help clean up the mess. I should have acted on it earlier, but my free time is not what it once was. Plus, I went into holiday mode, fought off an illness, and had a kid's birthday during that stretch.

Anyway, JJ has un-done a lot of the damage, and I'm working on the rest. I think all the trash has been taken out of the sports forums. If there's still some there,use the Warn or Report functions where you see it. (It may look different for you as a user than me as an Admin.)

I'm going back and getting the rest of the trash out of General Discussion. Give me some more time to clean it.

Spammers who got in during the open reg period still have the ability to post, but we've already nuked the worst ones, and I'll get the rest. Most of them post once and don't come back, so likelihood of new garbage is low.

Thanks for cleaning things up, Jay and Mike. Hopefully you can find a moderator or two to handle screening people and cleaning up any messes. No one is blaming ya for not having time... hopefully there is help to keep this place in great shape!!
