    We are looking into how this happened. They somehow got through our screening process on their own. We have emails into SR about it. However, being the weekend. We may need to weather the storm a bit.

    spammers went on a spamming spree across the entire forum tex. Been doing cleanup duty here and inside the belly of the beast for the last hour. STILL getting people trying to create usernames.

    Great question. Thoughts mods?

    Thanks Kitzbuel, LIZF, Reno et al for your outstanding team D. Your weak side help and defensive rotations are on point!
