Sorry for missing the Tues daily post. It seems that I misplaced Tuesday entirely. I sure hope that nothing important was supposed to happen Tuesday.

I have to admit this site is pretty slow. On Tuesday there were 1084 posts total. When I posted here on Weds it made 1085. And my post today makes 1086. It reminds one of the sound of one hand clapping.

Well, nobody won the new user referral contest so I guess I keep the subwoofer.

LOL

We tightened the human verification image up so well that none of us could make out the letters. We got zero spammers but also got zero new registrants. So, the site switched to asking a question that requires an answer to be typed in. The questions used were car questions that most folks should know. We got one registrant after that.
However, for a few hours we reverted back to a simpler verification image and we got swamped immediately by spammers. So, there is no doubt that you could have hundreds of registrations if they were able to successfully register on your site.
Perhaps that could be your site's claim to fame? A site with a deliberate forum full of spammer posts? Looking for spam? We've got it here and we add more as quickly as we can...

I lost a few days somewhere and failed to make my daily post. Funny, I looked all over for those lost days and I can not find them nor can I recollect them.
