It has certainly been heavy hasn't it ? I've never seen anything like it. All China based and quite prolific. They have even taken to registering different names. Meaning that in the past the bustards would register, throw a dozen messages at the board and the entire lot could be deleted and user banned in one hit. Now it is likely to be half a dozen user names.

Not that I am privvy to such matters but I suspect perhaps while the new software version , which obviously has the odd kink still to straighten out, settles in, we might see the odd hiccup.

Have faith ... I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.

5 hours of posts is like 35 posts for me. Of course, it was like 2,790 for Dog.
