• We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.
  • The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Please bear with us while the protocal is being revised regarding editing/deletion of spammers.

Beginning 10/12/14, a concentrated effort was launched by 4 - 5 spammers. Please do not rereport a thread or post that has been reported by someone else. Do not post additional comments/replies to such.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.

A majority of the active, hard line spammers have been deleted and banned.

If you see a stray one out there, please PM me with a link.

With your help and perseverance, we will strive to keep OCDO on an even keel.

Thanks for all of your patience.

The new program put into place about 7 months ago is doing a fantastic job.

Look at the bottom of the Main Forum page and you will just how good it is.

OCDO is a very popular site for those attempting to drop spam bombs - few, very few, are getting through and they are deleted/banned w/o mercy.
