Is way up. Way, way up. I'm not sure if there's something you messed up, or if there's jsut somebody targeting you, but man oh man browsing the forums feels like browsing the web without adblock. The obvious solution is to just not allow new users to create a thread instantly, but rather queue it for moderation. That worked fine for UA for a while. Any reason that couldn't be implemented on the forums? Surely that's got to be an option in the forum software.
