You may have notice that FO has been attacked by spammers the last few days. (The FOA 2012 discussion board is now basically unusable.) We're working hard to fix this problem going forward. One of the problems is that the spammers are actually registering as users. This means that even registered users may have to enter CAPTCHA for comments if our filter thinks your comment is possible spam. It's also possible that comments may not appear or be blocked; if you have that problem, please leave a comment in this thread or e-mail us through the contact form above.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
ANNOYING SPAMMER UPDATE: In an effort to kill this thing off, as of Wednesday, we've set the discussion boards so that the FO staff has to moderate the creation of new threads. So if you go to create a thread on the fantasy board, for example, and it doesn't immediately appear, that's what's going on. When we see it, we'll approve it and it will appear.
