Just wanted to say that I'm glad and relieved to see you all back and I hope that DA finds a permanent solution to keep the bots out of the forum. If anybody here could at least read Mandarin ... 

Although I have to admit that I was quite impressed by one of them. It managed to post more than 10K topics within a very short time which made it the most prolific and therefore illustrious member in the history of the forum. It needed just a day or so to even surpass dear @SDR who invested years of hard labor to rightfully claim the top position.

@tktoo2 - fingers crossed

Dear @herringbone,

If I could "like" your post twice, I would.

Thanks again for your crucial, if tedious, work!

I think the biggest thanks goes to a DA staff member called Sarah who fixed most of it if I got it correctly.

@herringbone, I haven't had a drink since New Year's Eve but, when I do, I'll hoist the first, second, or third one in Sarah's honor!

Thanks, Sarah and Herringbone, and hello to all.  I haven't been paying attention;  thanks so much for carrying on !

@lexi Thank god, this one was quite managable. It only left 115 posts which I was able to delete by hand. But there's no guarantee that momie2847 or whatever it's name was won’t return. I'll have to discuss this with DA, there must be a better solution.

@herringbone. Good job again. It is a pity we cannot just wave a magic wand.

In it's time of need I have been somewhat MIA and I must apologise for that. I am hopeful I'll have more of an opportunity to be helpful from here on out. Well done Herringbone. Glad you're all doing well and still here.

Just in case you're wondering: I'll leave the bot entries as they are so the DA team can analyze them and find a way to keep them out of the forum.

Good news:  it seems the bot problem has been solved for now. Fingers crossed that they don’t find ways to sneak in again.
