Does this have anything to do with the Forum page "crashing" on Sunday? (I got a message on the screen saying it was "Inaccessible due to "Multiple" requests" or something to that effect. It took about 8 hours to get better. (AG had the same problem)

Pass. Sundays are for sailing (or boat jumbling in our case) and a popular time for site maintenance which may be the reason.

This has nothing to do with the forum downtime. This spam email is generated by a 3rd party.

Does anyone else get spam filter proof emails from "alanatcvrda.org", which, as they are generally trying to make me interested in slimming pills or young ladies from Russia, I assume are not from our Alan...

Yes I get the lot. There's three or four addresses for which I can't turn on spamguard too. Mailwasher Free quickly sorts them out and flags up the spam for deletion leaving me to download the genuine.
I've replaced a number of harvestable addresses on the site with images but can't alter the forum.
