I've tried contacting them about this and so have some other people. This is crazy - do something about this!
THanks for clearing all this up! I don't frequent this place as much as i used to - i hang around in the Far North Forum - but when i heard what was happening here i came to check and have been checking in off and on to see how the clean-up of the spambots was going. Glad that they seem to be gone!
The funny thing is that when i checked the last page, the post on top was one of the old garden buddy threads from 2004! Memories! Where are all those people now? :)
I'm happy to see this cleared up also. What a mess that was!
