When it gets so difficult to post because of all the different rules we have to interpret, then the spammers have won.
What we really need to ask ourselves, as farmers, is why would someone spam this site? The only reason I can see, is that someone doesn't want us farmers (and former farmers) communicating with each other. Many have already left this forum. After 30 minutes of trying to get something posted, I couldn't get it to go because of some error that I can't seem to find. I takes time to make a posting, and when it doesn't go it's frustrating.
Maybe they've already won.

No, this is not just random hacking. This is someone targeting this site. A random hacker wouldn't waste the time on something this small. Think what you want on this one - this is someone deliberately trying to kill this site.

As one of the "spammers" I am getting those error codes too, the last one was on an ON TOPIC SUBJECT.
AS a spammer on this forum I give up ,Jim and management win. I had no clue my lollipop thingy was so offensive. I was busy working in the shop yesterday morning , just before noon discovered an attic Fire and then had some excitement there. Scorched that corner of the machine shed. Found out just how worthless those and cheap Fire extinguisher s are. Got a call from a friend right after the excitement telling me about the dust up here.
I logged out on the main computer yesterday and am now going to log out on the tablet.
I have NO intention of going down in that political cesspool with snurbut and the cr@p down there.
I have asked for an off topic forum and have been lead to believe they were ok
with the status quo. What a fool I've been, sorry for cluttering up the web site
Have a great time ... I'm probably going to check in from time to time just to see all the great
marketing posts by Jumbo.
Guess the kudo totals are a joke too? Where's your name on the list Jim?
BTW. Good job Jen.

I would suspect a former disgruntled computer programmer formerly employed by SF. Perhaps tied to something Big Johnny Walker did or said to them. I would be combing and examining the past employee records at SF.
