As a result a few days ago I started getting dozens (hundreds) of bogus user submissions to the website. My geeky friends got together and I've now deployed an improved protection system. Now those bot generated bogus spammy user submissions have dropped to zero, as of this morning.
It's a never ending cat and mouse game. The programmers create a protection scheme, and the hackers try to get past it. Once they figure it out then the programmers figure you what they're doing, and block the hole. But anyway...
There's a slight chance that some of my valid paid subscribers don't have access to the website, because I was simply mass deleting all of those spammy bot bogus users, without looking at them very hard. Normally I examine each and every user submission, to make sure the authorized users can get in, and the rest can't.
Anyway, please make sure you've got access if you're a paid and valid subscriber. If you don't have access, please shoot me an email and I'll fix it for you.
My annual audit of all User accounts continues. It takes awhile to go through each and every account one at a time to make sure everyone with access has paid. I've got another bunch to go through, then I'll be caught up.
In the meantime, if you still have access and you still have not paid to renew your subscription, please do it now (before I find it, delete you account, and either toss you or otherwise coerce you to do it under duress...)
Thanks again, and have a wonderful day...
