Until Paul decides how he wants to, or if he wants to deal with the spamming issues here, here is how you can help. As an administrator I can delete the spam post and the thread will dissapear off of the home page and back into the history where it belongs. However, if you reply to the spam post, then even if I delete the post, the old thread will remain on the homepage. You can help by please refraining to respond to a spammer's post.

Thanks, P

Oh, and of course the more new threads you post (worthy cigar or cigar related posts) the quicker the old threads will be bumped off the home page.

It has been in the works for a couple years but then life got in the way. Starting to right myself again, so will pick it back up again. 95% done, minus the phone app integration, but with Apple killing i'm not sure how big a deal it is, except for Android app users.

Please don't drop the Android APP functionality. I use it all the time. Would even buy a new version if that's what it takes for it to stay working.

Indeed, no comment on the Nike spam so admins can delete it cleanly.
