It's been quite a while and the spammers keep piling on. It's not even worth checking in anymore. It's a shame. This has been my first stop in the morning for 4 years and the site is pretty much dead. Evey morning when I log on all I see is more spam. Any attempts to post any sort of meaningful content are quickly buried under it.
I found a group on Facebook called Walking Stick Makers". I still don't like Facebook's format but I like spam even less. I can be found there.
