Bynw, I think someone added a post that does not belong! (Walter Cox)

That was not a member of our community. It was a post by "guest" which was most likely a bot of some kind. thankfully there is only 1 board that a guest can post to without being a member or we would have a ton of such spam postings. it has been removed.

The fact that this is the first spam that I can remember being publicly posted in the five years since I joined the forum just proves how well run it is and what a good job the moderators do. Thank you to Bynw, Desert Rose and Evie.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Aw, thanks!  Most of it is the tech end, which is Bynw's department; he's got some fairly strong procedures in place to prevent spamming!  :D
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Like revanne, this was the first of that sort of thing I've seen on the forum.  It took me totally by surprise!

You all do a great job.
