We are reviving hundreds of spam applications a day again, I have checked and the captcha is still working so the spammers have found a way around it.
Our website program is 15 years old and needs to be upgraded to be a viable tool to keep up with the technology those that intend to interfere are using.
That is going to cost $2,000-5,000. Combine that with the dramatically increasing fees just to keep the website on the internet - at close to $600 a year now, I am considering closing the website down.
Other forums like the CJ3B have fallen to similar assaults over the last few years. All forums I have been on - Model A, mustangs, etc. are seeing dramatic decrease in traffic due to Facebook and twitter groups now being a big thing.
I am opening this up to anyone that wants to run the forum and take over, but Wes and I just don't have the time and money to keep it going.
Thanks to technology ever changing and spammers I really hate to do this.

I'll chip in financially to help out. Maybe set up a GoFundMe for the site? Annual contributions?
I'm just not a good one for technical assistance.... _________________ North Shore, MA

I'd be lost without you guys.
Hate the thought of caving in to these wackjobs.
I just deleted what I really wanted to say.
