Puffin Site Plagued By Porn

If you actually venture into the forum you will find that the issue of porn spamming was first addressed a couple of months ago. Puffin's complacency in this matter is extremely surprising.

We're pleased to see that Penguin/Puffin have now disabled the forum, pending solution to the problem.
