Site Issues

Postby JohnV on May 22nd, 2009, 11:00 am

Hi all -

The web hosting service I previously used with great success has transferred all of their assets to another host (JumpLine - STAY AWAY!) .

This new host has been responsible for the problems that you have been seeing over the past few days and months. I am in the process of moving everything to a new host. As far as I can tell the board has in no way been compromised, the recent problems stem from a ham handed response by the host to "Security issues" on another site, and to an unannounced move to a different control panel system.

The site is going to be up and down over the next couple of days as I try to get everything moved. Thanks for your patience, and I apologize for any problems.

I am working with them to get the data restored, but it doesn't look likely at this point.

Kind regards

I was very excited when I first saw this forum for BFS sufferers but now I'm not so sure this is legit after reading some of the posts leading to trashy talk. What is the deal here?

Unfortunately Spammers use bots to automatically join forums and spam them. I am careful to check each new registration, but it's been getting harder and harder to identify them.

If you come across spam or abusive posts, please don't hesitate to notify me. Can you tell me what posts you are seeing?
