    There were problems with spamming from random accounts, some of which were dormant.

    Yep. I got some spam and soon after that, the forums went offline, so I figured that was the case. After a few hours of it being offline, I googled the problem and saw that it was being worked with on the vbulletin forums by the one and only arn.
