We have made a small change to the forum setup to show user profiles to logged in users only. This is to protect your privacy, but also to prevent anyone from using the website address for spamming purposes.

As mentioned previously, we do have plans to significantly improve the design and layout of these pages. At that time we may change the setup so that some parts of the profile are visible to everyone while some are available only to registered users. Your feeedback on that would be appreciated.

Oh, and if anyone knows of any other holes in our spam prevention policies, please do let us know! We want to make this place as useful and spam-free as possible.

Unfortunately there's not much we can do about the flood of stupid SEO questions lately!
