    I took the site down this afternoon for maintenance. Things went wrong, but fortunately, I backed everything up before starting. Then things went wrong trying to restore the backup, but everything is fixed and working again now. Sorry for the inconvenience! I'm just glad it all back again and no data was lost.

    Travis, you had a message up earlier about increased spam. Am I fallin' down on the job or are they just gettin' sneakier?

    The spammers have calmed down a bit the last few months. The notice is old, but still encourages people to report it if they see it.

    Yeah...mostly new users. If I see a name like "ivoryoxiihe11" then I'll check their info page. If it's got links to online gaming, fat pills, dating sites.... stuff like that, that has nothing to do with XS650's, then we escort 'em to the door and bolt it behind us.

    Unless you've a permit to carry 'round these parts, you can't. Just click the report button if you run across one. A bouncer will be along directly.
    They're mostly search engine bots. Cataloguing pages for Google, Bing etc.

    I'm glad there are knowledgeable people like you to keep this site and us spam free. Or at least under control. Thanks guys. As far as the duration of the maintenance, well, sometimes things take longer than planned. It happens.

    Agreed. I'm sure Travis has a "regular" job to deal with. I'm not sure he gets enough credit for keeping the trains running on time here.

    I take it engine bots are not a concern
