    My James Bond update thread got 15012 down-votes alone. That's a little extreme I think.

    Hi DM - After TM posted this, I wanted to check, and I saw that
    my BBS currently has no messages in the Dove-Net Entertainment
    sub-board. I'm not sure how that happened, and I'm not sure what
    logs I can check to see what happened there.

    I noticed the same thing. Also in the Synchronet Discussion area.
    Very strange.

    Obviously the work of dubious hackers.

    Votes are messages. Until yesterday-ish, they counted toward the total number of messages in an area. If you only retain 10K messages in Synchronet Discussion, the deluge of downvotes would've pushed some "actual" messages out.
    With a new build, the vote messages won't count toward that retention limit (as I understand it).
