Our site has been hacked and we have lost a couple of posts
The Spam emails were the result of this hack.
Iíll try my best to keep the site safe and Spam free

These hacks are just waste of time for everybody.
It seems that there is a security issue with phpbb,
Iíll try to fix it in the next upgrade.

And again Iím sorry for any trouble it may has caused for any of our members.

I had a couple simultaneous spam attacks on my own board a few monts ago. They hacked into a couple accounts and started spamming through PMs. It wasn't too pretty. I learned the hard way why very few forums enable guest posting :P There's some people in this world who shouldn't be allowed to use the interent :cry:
