Anyone familiar with this site? The photos will certainly make you hungry! I tried signing up but I haven't gotten a confirmation email and can't figure out how to contact the site administrator. Well, at least I tried! Meanwhile, it's some very interesting reading!

    DallasFood.org appears to have been the victim of a spammer attack and the forums currently are down. Anyone know what happened and when it will be back up?

      I was just about to post the same thing...I kept thinking it would just come back one day.

      Anyone hear anything about it? I couldn't find a place to email the webmaster or anything.

        Don't know. It's still down as far as I can tell.

              A "horrific" spam attack and a "bloody deluge". Wow. Perchance just a teensy-tiny little bit of hyperbole from Teresa Gubbins, the writer?

                Seems like not too long ago CH was suffering from the same sort of things. Glad that ended. I don't like "bloody deluges!"

                  Phpbb has always been vulnerable to those kinds of spam attacks. Glad that they're back though.

      I am a member of the site. Just be patient Scott (the owner) might be on a food excursion and detailing his reviews. Scott is very thorough. You can browse through the posts btu can't make comments if you aren't a member but I just read most of the information anyway.

        Love the site...especially the piece on NOKA.
