    To the great Rogues of the forums.

    I've been getting a lot of impatient messages about the current malware issues. Rest assured I am working diligently to remove the infection, which is due to a vulnerability in the forum scripts. They don't pose a threat to any but the oldest and most outdated machines, but I am personally taking this very seriously, and this infection will be re-mediated as soon as possible.

    The anti-virus effort will coincide with some forum upgrades, so don't be surprised if things look very different around here. It's all for the better.

    I'm really curious what you have in store, Otto. I just can't wait until this place is back fully functional again.

    You mean we are "disfunctional" now?
