Let me first apologize for the 4 months that the Message Board was inactive.
I have known for some time that our board was particularly susceptible to spammers.
The last attack on April 15th was the last straw. I have since rewritten the
The board should be more secure now because no web pages exist - they are all created on the fly. That means that no web searches will find the board or any of its messages. That should cut down on messages that don't have anything to do with Ustica and help better protect your email addresses from being harvested for spam lists.
A new feature is the New Messages link. That page will only display threads that contain a message posted in the last 30 days. It is automatic and will continually keep the list current.
As always, please report any problems or inappropriate messages and I will take care of them. Let's hope this latest version gives us a break from the ills of the internet.
