Just check new posts and it's all garbaged up with a million spambot posts. I assume y'all are working on whatever system you use to stop this from happening, but wanted to point it out in case you weren't aware.

They are still showing up and posting new threads. :( The 'NEW POST' feature is almost worthless. I waded through 6 pages and finally gave up. 

YIKES!

Yep, another wave hit this morning.  There were a ridiculous amount of posts.  I think we have gotten them all and have solved it for now.  Please report the posts if you see them.  I'm sitting on my computer today. :)
