In our ongoing efforts to combat bulletin board spam,
we've instituted a new front: keyword renaming.

It is embarrassing when a respectable bulletin board
such as our own is bombarded by automated systems
posting corn. Despite countermeasures, it is
difficult to keep this offensive spam at bay.

We remove most spam several times per week, but
chances are that at any particular time you visit, one,
or possibly two such posts will have been made that have
not yet been removed.

We apologize for this.

Meanwhile, we're trying out a new approach: whenever the
word "P O R N" is used we translate it to "C O R N".
We hope that if you are looking for information on the
plant that grows on stalks, and forms ears, you will quickly
pass us by and find more informative sites.

If you are just looking around, and see posts about "corn",
we hope you'll skip them, realizing that they are "p o r n ography",
and not "cornography" (sic), and that they will soon be deleted.

If you are posting this "corn" on this site, we hope you will
reconsider. We're not naive enough to believe that any argument
we could make will change your behavior, and we don't have reason
to believe that you would even read this post. It is our intention
to make posting your "corn" here -- unprofitable.
