First odd, do you have any posts that are spam? That will help deal with it.

And I'm sorry that the interactive story site isn't quite all it should be. Web tech is really not me field (which I think should be obvious at this point) so I'm struggling to try and add some useful features. One thing I'm going to see about doing is finding a way to throttle posting a bit, though not sure how much that will help fix the problem.

Because I was quick to delete the linked post so the link ended up going to the top of the thread. Thanks for the question though, perfectly reasonable one to ask.
