Forum update, restrictions on new users
Forum was updated, in addition some changes were made to combat spam:
New users are now first put in a group called ``New users'', which has several restrictions:
In addition messages are now scanned by a spamfilter (Typepad antispam).
These restrictions will be liften when a user has posted 5 posts OR has been registered for 5 days, which ever comes first.
We'll see how this works and add other measures if needed.
Another change is that http://daemonforums.org is now redirected to http://www.daemonforums.org.
Also, the ``Post thank you hack'' is disabled for now, when upgrading this plugin all the database data related to it was lost, I can restore it from a backup I took just before the forums were upgrade (Already have done so partially) but this is not quite done yet.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
