Thank you for your vigilance in flagging Spam in the forums. My apologies for the delay in blocking these two users. We have been working on an large infrastructure and redesign for the websites.
Thank you, Jim. We appreciate the report of spam and the feedback on the design. I responded to that post directly. We were able to replicate the SSL certificate issue which was caused by an incorrect link in the menu system.
Spam is on the rise. I think it’s too easy to register. I would at least suggest new members accept TOS that include rules about not spamming the forums with product/service advertisements and weblinks. The weblinks could put our members at risk of identity theft or other fraudulent schemes. Better yet, consider employing the free service from StopForumSpam.com to disallow known spammers from creating a new account or posting phishing links.
