I noticed a new addition to the main home page, which is a good sign, so perhaps
things will ultimately turn around and get better for this site overall.
Although we forum members have had to endure quite a bit of forum spam and
vandalism over the last year or so, we probably shouldn't rule out the possibility
that UFOEvidence.org's owner just hasn't had the time or resources to apply all
the improvements that we've been hoping for.
I think it's entirely possible that this site, and its forums, can be turned around

restrict the 'submit' button on forum posts to just one click, rather than allowing
users to continually press it. This modification all by itself would help to some

as it was, allowed munchins to continually press it, producing countless threads..
.. or forum vandalism in other words. And a couple of us had to use the same
tactic to push that nonsense off the main page on many occasions.
Fortunately, from all appearances, this issue has been addressed, giving us a
glimmer of hope of resuming some lively discussions. It's far from perfect, but a
