I'll go ahead and be transparent here: I lost my baby boy last month. I've been grieving and trying to return to work and life just isn't what it was since he's been gone. I don't want to quit being a mod here, but I'll honestly probably be absent for a minute while I try and figure out life.
Oh man, I am so unbelievably sorry for your loss, I really wish nobody ever had to feel this pain. I wish that anything anybody could do to make you feel better happens.

The pain of losing a loved one, even your own flesh and blood is unimaginably painful and no parent should have to bury their child. If you ever want to vent, I'm willing to lend a sympathetic ear through messages. I can't say the despair over my sister is the same as your despair, but it's as close as I can get.

Unrelated, but a professional hacker essentially put up his resume on here and created a thread for that explicit reason. Should we be worried about that?

Soldier, report them immediately. Especially if it's in a profile message. Someone will kill it tho it's been slower than usual.

I'll have to look but there has got to be a way to stop new members from making threads and profile messages; I think it's come to that to help quell the spammer flood.

[Edit] Looks like it can be done with plugins + make a New User group and have freshly registered people land in that one, then you can set permissions so they can't make threads until a certain number of posts. (I REALLY think we should take that from the old RPGamer forums to shut them down.) Tell the admin to check here: XF2addons.com. Hopefully that will help for I think I speak for a lot of people in saying it's getting tiresome to report 5-6 spambots making a mess every morning. I think they're sensing there's blood in the water so they're all jumping in the pool right now, which is why we're seeing more of them.

God, I am so sorry Max. That's awful. I hope you're getting all the support you need right now, and please don't feel obligated to do anything over here. Please just take good care of yourself.

My heart wanes to the very depths for you and my condolences are equally as vast, I can't even begin to imagine. Please, keep friends and family as close as you can right now and take all the time that you need. I am deeply sorry for your loss and I'll add you into my prayers friend.
