    To keep the signal-to-noise ratio high here, so you can get the answers you need without having to wade through the spambot-posted junk messages that I’ve started having to remove on a daily basis, I’ve added a post validation mechanism to the Support Forum. When you start a new topic, or reply to an existing topic, you’ll be asked to solve a simple arithmetic problem to assure the system that you aren’t a script.

    I hope this approach will solve the problem without posing too great an inconvenience to forum users. I absolutely welcome new posts and new topics from sincerely interested TypeMetal users (as well as prospective users who’ve come here to ask questions)! If you find the math problem approach frustrating, please let me know and I will gladly try an alternative. We just need to find a way to keep the bots out so we can all enjoy some nice, illuminating conversations. :-)

    Thanks for your patient assistance in trying this out!

    ps – I apologize to any who’ve been receiving spam as a result of having checked “Notify me of follow-up replies via email”. No doubt that’s what spammers hope for.

    The new anti-spam measure seems to be holding so far (knock wood). Let me know if you receive any more of junk messages from the TypeMetal forums; they should stop now.

    Thanks,
    Troy
