    Just curious, has BMCuser been under some technical difficulty lately?

    New "post" views are always only one more than comments. Older threads are locked at old views.

    Korean car adds on people's post.

    Multiple 401 errors.

    Spam messages being sent to users.

    Are the Mods locked out or is the site just running into some speed bumps?

    The post views is something I noticed months ago and just thought it was an error due to site maintenance.

    I haven't seen random ads or 401 errors, might want to check your computer for malware that might be imposing it on the site.

    Slightly off topic but it would be nice if BMCuser enabled (and enforced) SSL so passwords weren't sent plain text. I mean heck ssl certs are even free now with Let's Encrypt.

    I haven't received any of the spam messages, but I do remember recently that several members had complained/was curious about it. Maybe it's widows thing, and us Mac guys are invincible or something . I have seen 401 errors on certain post, but this may be due to the post being removed, so who knows on that one.

    Received spam in my BMCuser mailbox. There looks to be an issue for the site.
    If I wanted my films to look like the real world I'd buy a video camera.
