    Love this forum, problems with another

    It appears that poolandspaforum.com has been taken over by spammers. Anyone having similar problems? Anyone know how to delete your account with them? I'm sticking with this forum-my water is crystal, despite FEET of rain this winter. And I never get spammed here.

    Do you mean spammed via pm's or something?

    When I have visited the site, I have noticed ALOT of topics advertising "male enhancements" and what not...LOL

    Perhaps they need more mods (that have no life-like myself hahaha)

    Their domain name registration expired several weeks ago. Since they haven't renewed it by now, I suspect they are not going to.

    Yes it was PM spam, but seems to have stopped now. Thanks.

    Did you maybe mean poolspaforum.com instead of poolandspaforum.com? The former had PM spam issues and some family-inappropriate ads, but they just did a whole refresh of the site and I haven't noticed anything nasty lately.

    Yes, did mean poolspaforum.com and yes, they do look to have cleaned up some. Still, this forum has been good to me, never sent me anything I did not want, always good info, so going to stay here.

    Well, hm, poolspaforum.com having more troubles apparently... I can't even get the home page.
    You don't have permission to access /forum/index.php on this server.
    Anybody know what's going on, or is it just me?

    I see the same thing. I have no idea what is happening. The home page problem could be a symptom of any of a variety of server or administrative problems.
