I'm guessing that as no-one's offers of help have elicited a response, this is being allowed to drift into oblivion. No criticism of Pete at all, he has soldiered on manfully more or less (or completely?) single handed for some time.
He has said openly that he has no love for the Froth Pot and wouldn't do anything about spam there but the attack on Scouting Reports is a major pain.

I see the domain name registration is due to expire in May. I know this doesn't necessarily mean anything, registrations expire and have to be renewed, but it makes you wonder what will happen given Doc's apparent disinterest and the cost of renewing the domain and the forum licence. I believe the money from competitions and sales of figures used to fund things (or at least help) but as we haven't done any of that for some years I'm guessing the money is more or less gone.

Make the most of it people.

We felt that way the last time it was up for renewal, and yet Doc still renewed it for some reason. I think even he'll decide to cut costs after all the price increases next month.

But the spamskibots keep coming on here, all scavenging for every last worthless rouble :|

Vlad's mindless bot army are pretty much wrecking Scouting Reports now :|

Oh, but won't anyone think of the botski-farm masters? Those poor souls scraping together every, now worthless, rouble they can to pay their gangster leader, Vlad, so that he can carry on with his gibberingly insane war that he's failing at.

There do seem to be cries of help in these endless spam thread titles. Words such as "Lonely" and "Depressed" as well as "Deficit" are standing out :lol:
