More curious than anything to know if anyone has insight into why there is a surge of spam recently. I have myself flagged I think 6 posts in the last week or so, all of which seem to appear in the overnight hours. In the grand scheme 6 isn’t a lot, I definitely get that, but it is a lot for this site.
Next time I see one I’ll take a screen grab before I flag. It’s been pretty often over the last week in particular. So it feels like something happened in the background with programming or algorithm for the board.
Ah, that explains it a bit better. I’d seen a couple new posts that had been already flagged for deletion. There was no text that I could see. When I clicked on the user’s name, it showed they had joined just three hours earlier. I think that name had “towing” as part of their name.
