Idea Place Spam Attack
This past weekend Idea Place was attacked by a spambot that was creating fake accounts then posting ideas and comments on those ideas.
We removed all the spam from the sessions; however, we have had to temporarily stop all new accounts from being created to stop the spam.
This means that new users who has never accessed Idea Place before will not be able to create an account, create ideas, vote or comment.
Existing users who have accessed Idea Place are not affected (i.e. they can still do everything they could do before).
We are working to figure out the best solution going forward and will notify you when we are allowing new accounts to be created again.
Unfortunately with all public communities and forums, spam is an ongoing battle. If you do see anything amiss, please do send us the details.
We appreciate your patience in this matter,
