Important message about your account

I've noticed in the last several weeks that I have been getting a ton of spam and virus emails to my email address used on this site. Because of this I'm going to remove my email from the site. If you need to message me please just send a Private Message.

Also, I would suggest to anyone who has their email address set to display... you may want to disable the display in your profile. Click on the profile link at the top of any page and choose NO next to Display Email near the top of your profile. This will turn off your email address from being viewed by anyone or any crawlers/spam bots. This is a common problem with any board when it becomes popular and this is the best solution to solving the problem.

In order to protect everyones email from these spam crawlers I have turned on the email via board option. If you have your email address set to display it will not show. Instead registered users will be able to email you via the web site. This will cut down on the possible spam problems users will have if their email address is displayed.

Send me a private message if you should have any questions.

Thanks!
