Oh dear - - - it was about time! I finally cleaned up this site of all of the spam - if only a quick spray with scrubbing bubbles would have solved the problem. It wasn't so easy - electronic grime and dirt is a lot more difficult to clean up than garden goop and muck! Darn those spammers. Its been 48 hours now since I added new plug-ins to fend off the offenders, and so far, so good. Cross your fingers!
