yes, just deleted one sent to me!
Can't remember, does the site registration have one of those random pic's ,where you have to type in what it says. A lot of forums use them these days. Supposed to help stop these adbots signing up!

alot of the problems is due to us running a very out of date version of vbulletin and since our upgrade license had long since expired we can't update to the newest version.

But there are some maintenance updates that can be applied, so i will endevor to get these done as soon as possible.
