I’ve upgraded the software that runs Orphan Road to try and deal with some spam issues that you may have seen on the site. There are also some anti-spam measures in the registration process. As part of all this, I’ve been deleting hundreds of spam user registrations that have shown up in the last month. I’m trying very hard to not delete “real” people, but in the unlikely event that I delete your account, please accept my sincerest apologies in advance.

Oh, and bloggers should have an easier time uploading images to the blog. Let me know how that works.
