    Default Database Errors

    This AM I encountered a couple of Database Errors while attempting to read the first unread post in a thread on the General IT Discussions forum. I was able to refresh and access the the thread. I mention this because we had several of these before a recent corrupted database disaster.

    The DB is still a mess. The upgrade didn't change the offending code.
    I have 2 weeks starting this weekend and will finally have time to rebuild everything.

    And BTW, there are about 10x spammers trying to register for every legit address.
    All members are being manually reviewed and accepted. Takes many days in some cases to approve.

    >>> can the spambots beat the captcha verification?

    no but rooms full of people being paid pennies to manually register can.
    The offending IPs mostly link back to .in domains.
