    Default New Log-in to Combat Spam?

    Hey folks...

    I know we never hear from the owner, but in light of the recent increase in spam posts, I've also noticed in the last day or two that - for the first time in years, maybe e decade - I've had to re-log-in to the site from both my desktop and iPad. I wonder if not remembering log-ins is part of a new routine. Anyone else?

    I stay logged into FPG and so far I haven't been logged out.
    I wish the owner would reappear and take action regarding all these spammer posts but iI don't think it will happen.

    I previously always stayed logged in. Lately I have to log in every time I visit the site.

    If the cookies got cleared you would have to log in again. Forget to check "remember me" and you'll have to log in every time.

    That did it. Thanks, Ron. I haven't needed to login for well over a year and then, about a week ago I began having to every time I visited the site. I guess the "remember me" box became unchecked without my realizing it.

    I think that is what occurred with me, as well.

    I have 3 regular sites that I always need to remember to log back into every time I clear my history, and FPG is one of them.
    I usually find it's better to check the remember me box first as there seems to be a tendency to log in as soon as the password box auto completes.
