We have recently seen an escalation in attacks against our forum
service, causing users who monitor one or more forums on our
site to receive an onslaught of spam. We apologize for this
misuse of our facilities. In our attempts to keep Open Channel
available for all legitimate users, we have had to make some
policy changes to prevent inappropriate use of our resources. We
remain committed to keeping our forums and other resources
available while limiting (and hopefully eliminating) abuse.
