I am unaware of this particular issue until now, or, if I was it has 
slipped my mind. I have responded to your complaints in the past and 
fixed as many of them as possible. Instead of making these snide 
comments on the mailing list, it would be more helpful if you simply 
aired your issues with me privately. I then *might* be more inclined to 
work on them. It would be better to handle forum issues on the forum (or 
privately) and not to pollute the mailing list with them.

I addressed your issue about which you haven't made "multiple" 
complaints. It seems that you are the *only* one complaining about it 
despite there being nearly 4000 registered users. See above.

I host and administer the forum in the little spare time that I have. I 
have no ads or other compensation. I try to deal with spam posts and 
legitimate posts that are caught in the spam filter in a timely fashion.

If someone else feels that they can do a better job, let me know and I 
will give you the files and database in a zip and Igor can point the 
subdomain to your IP. No hard feelings.

Or, if Igor wants the forum closed, all he needs do is say the word...
