As a result of massive spam activity, there are likely to be disruptions to Wordwizard over the coming weeks and months. It may be necessary to shut down the board entirely for the last week of December in order to avoid further punitive charges from the host for once again exceeding the traffic limit.

The team apologizes for any inconvenience that may be caused.

I know for a fact that Phil and I have quite a few words for them, as I presume the other moderators do. 'Moderator' is a term unconnected with epithet choices.

.. Erik you're suggesting then that the "moderate" in moderator is not within the meaning of >> being within reasonable or average limits; not excessive or extreme when it comes to dealing with spamerators ?? ..
