    Default Spam Bot Warning?

    Everytime I come to the forums, I get a page telling me to click a re-direct link if I'm not a Spam bot as it says my IP has been flagged for spam postings.

    I am certainly not a bot and definitely have not posted any spam to this site.

    It also does this when I click 'view more' for the pictures at the upper right. It makes me write a reason to be 'white listed' and allowed to view more on the site.

    What gives?

    Hi there ~

    One of the anti-spam measures we have working on the site is IP-based, and the messages you're seeing are related to that.

    It's safe to complete the "white listing" procedure when it asks you to do it.

    Sorry for the trouble...we're having to employ a multi-pronged approach to keeping these suckers from hitting us with spam like they were last year!

    Feel free to post here or email/PM if you have any other concerns.

    That's what I figured was going on due to the other minor hiccups with the board lately, but just wanted to be sure I wasn't being targeted
