Re: Dealing with Spam

Nuke it all.

And make it more difficult for the spammers to get on board by moderating the first post and insisting it’s a proper introductory one - recruit more moderators if necessary.

Risk to Leader question

Re: Maori Wars

Still lots of stuff to read but I’m sure there was an exchange of artillery fire between a Pa and gunboats during the Waikato campaign.
