We are testing the "Akismet" anti-spam verification system to profiles and forum posts.

Let us know if you encounter problems.

This was motivated by the latest "attack" and the precious time taken for fixing these annoyances.

Due to a possible bug in the forum code, comments that trigger the anti-spam system are brought back to the "preview" page without any warning. There, you are supposed to edit it to make it look less spammish.

If you want to try, enter a "viagra-test-123" comment.

Please be patient while we fix this.
