Yes, the ‘An Apology’ thread was closed deliberately. Over the last year it was attracting hundreds of spam messages per day. Moderators need to check every message to judge whether it has been correctly flagged, and it can be a significant workload. Now that the thread has been closed there has been a 99% reduction in spam.
We sent advance warning of this action to your email address last week.
You can keep your Blairwatch project going on here in the forums, or we can maybe re-open another thread for it.
