    Spam Attack

    Please bear with us while the protocal is being revised regarding editing/deletion of spammers.

    Beginning 10/12/14, a concentrated effort was launched by 4 - 5 spammers. Please do not rereport a thread or post that has been reported by someone else. Do not post additional comments/replies to such.

    Your patience and understanding is appreciated.

    A majority of the active, hard line spammers have been deleted and banned.

    If you see a stray one out there, please PM me with a link.

    With your help and perseverance, we will strive to keep OCDO on an even keel.

    Thanks for all of your patience.

    The new program put into place about 7 months ago is doing a fantastic job.

    OCDO is a very popular site for those attempting to drop spam bombs - few, very few, are getting through and they are deleted/banned w/o mercy.
