The forums admin disappeared.  We lowly moderators (there were only two of 
us) had no ability to change anything in the forum setup.  We did the 
best we could for as long as we could to delete the spam entries every 
day.  Several of the users joined together to start a new forum, with 
multiple admins, and better anti-spam setup.  freebsdforums/bsdforums is 
all but dead.

http://www.daemonforums.org is where we all hang out now.
