Holy cow what happened in the open discussion?  Looks like we got Carpet-bomb-spammed.

Sorry this happened Rumble! It looks like they were taking advantage of us being out for the weekend. All spam should be deleted now.

I figure the Asian-language spam posts totaled around 8500, most posted during the western U.S. night/early morning hours.  The onslaught occurred this weekend into Monday morning.  All of it came from eleven new "registered users".  It was quite a mess.


It's happened before but this might have been the biggest dump.

Thanks GT Admin - I know you folks do what you can.  I just barked out a few colorful words from my USMC days, had a whiskey, and moved on.


Thanks for all you folks do.  Really.
