He is downloading the database to try to upgrade the forum tonight anyhow and thinks that when the spam filter was edited it affected the registration.

He's going to shut the site down for an hour or so during the process to eliminate problems of activity messing up the database during the process, so we will be down for what should hopefully be the last time for a long, long time.
