This kind of state of disrepair is unacceptable. First of all, this 
needs to be cleaned up ASAP. Second, all posters should require proper 
login authorization and you as the maintainer should be in charge of 
managing who posts what and for that reason are responsible for making 
sure the site does not end-up the way it did. If this mess is not 
cleaned up in a week, this sub-domain will go offline.

Best wishes,
