Hey, Spamgirl? Going to open up this forum to non-registered users ever again?

Sadly, I can't - someone had a for-profit site scraping our HOF and using it to make a profit. That's bullshit so I had to put it behind a registration only setting. Sorry

Jesus, that's terrible. I miss being able to see that stuff. It's probably going to take me a while to get my post count up since I don't have a lot of spare time these days (even for turking), and I was never big on message boards anyway. I was meaning to get into the forum more, but it seemed every time I had something to contribute, it had already been said. Lousy scammers making us friendly lurkers look bad. :(

It remains members-only as it would be too easy for scammers to see the great requesters and screw them over, like anyone who auto-accepts work. I wish I could make it visible to Google, but I can't :(

Meaning, there is NO post count to see it, you just have to be a member.
Google is not a member so they cannot farm the information.

I was about to ask what a "HOF" was, but then as I was typing it dawned on me. Not the sharpest tool in the shed here. At least I got it eventually.

But what's auto-accepting work?
