Yes, our submission form is offline

Over the weekend, a really shortsighted spammer got the idea in their head that our news submission form actually posts somewhere, and hit us with about sixty submissions consisting of nothing more than link spam, from a dozen or so different IP addresses.

I don't have a lot of free time, so I'm taking the form down while I work on implementing some form of lame-o captcha. Or something. Nothing's really going on now anyway (I mean, look at Drunkpoet's last post.)

PSA: If you don't have antivirus software, download AVG, it's free. If you don't have a firewall, Download ZoneAlarm free. AdBlocking software can't hurt either -- Try Windows Defender, AdAware, and SpyBot Search & Destroy. Please.
