Sorry about the spam recently, should be fixed

There seems to be a more concerted effort lately to get spam on the site.  I’ve been removing it right away, but it’s a pain.  I installed Akismet now, so that should hopefully take care of it.  I also updated the forum software and reCAPTCHA settings.

Let me know if you see any problems


Unfortunately even though akismet doesn’t allow spam messages to show on the site, they still go through the RSS feed and to the old liquibase-user mailing list.

I added an email activation requirement to joining to help stop the spam.  Let me know if you have issues with it.
