I'm surprised that the forum software suppliers let this go on for so long (assuming someone has told them).
I know that quite a number of the issues are to do with poor moderation and the firewall, but it certainly reflects badly on the forum suppliers as theirs is name that everyone sees.
Perhaps they see it as "only 1 sale" and therefore not too big an issue in the overall scale of things.

Plus it is an ancient version of the ASP vNext software.
Microchip have been using version 4.5 for years. The copyright message just displays the current year, it always updates on Jan-1.
Version 5 was released in 2013, and they are up to version 5.5 now.

Has anyone told them? I think someone should! If I needed to create a forum for my company, I'd be much more likely to choose phpBB because that's what appears on the bottom of this properly working forum!!

I see you've been able to post since. I guess it was a temporary glitch.

They're really having a problem with spam posts the last week or two it seems.

Get ready for "Passport" to start triggering their firewall.

Is it broken again? I'm getting no response when posting from quick reply or the "full version".
