for a long time I have been fighting spam on this forum, I have literally deleted hundreds of posts, but the management has done nothing to reduce the situation and as a result spam has increased exponentially. At this point I can't delete spammers and spam anymore, including the new one that borders on pornographic material, there's way too much. I see no reason in fighting a lost fight, and try and read the one post out of hundreds that is legitimate. I don't get a single post from spammers on my website and blog, so if I can do that *for free* I wonder why a magazine like Outdoor Photographer can't.
This forum was dead a while ago already. Those who need some technical advice on camera equipment and/or travel tips can contact me through my blog.
This is a goodbye, best of luck on your photographic endeavors.
