Thank you for the appreciation, Father.
Gary and I have been putting in a lot of long hours here to take the garbage out - the last 2 days have been pretty rough. We booted 78 spammers yesterday and have booted probably another 30-35 again today thus far. There is more to banning than just hitting the button - we have to check the ISP's and document every ban or suspicious user. We wouldn't do it, though, if we didn't feel this board and its members were the best Steelers site and fans on the face of the earth!
Love the new sig - how VERY true!
