Apologies for the inconvenience, folks. They're just coming out of the woodwork today.

Okay guys, that should be the last of them. *knocks on wood*

I have to apologize, as this was largely my fault. I'd gotten a bit too complacent and hadn't been going through the members list to keep an eye out for trouble signs. I've since gone back and did some aggressive pest control and will be more vigilant from here on out.

Sorry again about the inconvenience.

No idea. I changed some of the security settings, hopefully that will put a dent in it. I'll do best to head this off until this most recent flare up is dealt with.

They're like raccoons. Only not as cute.

Gabbert is apparently confused about what sort of "games" we play here.
