A spammer flood we didn't see here, thanks to Ducky

Summary: in early November a "tidal wave" of spammers hit many forums, including a lot which are running the same forum software we are (SMF).  Thanks to Ducky's admin prowess, we saw none of it.

And by "admin prowess" I mean "paranoia".  :)
I expect to pass through this world but once;
any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now;
let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Kudos to the Duckster !! We hates spam we do.
The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.
