    There is a LIBRARY OF POSTS REGARDING HIRING PROFFESSIONAL HOUSE MOVERS!!!!!!

    and SOMEHOW this SPAM is in my:
    Flag Reports. And I can not open nor DELETE IT!!!!

    vivikeetrade OR SOMEONE LIJE THAT HAS POSTED VOLUMES
    OF INFORMATION ABOUT MOVING & HIRING PROFESSIONAL HOUSE MOVERS!!!!!

    I just want THIS REMOVED FROM MY MESSAGES
    ( IF ANYONE CAN HELP? ).

    I've notified THE CONTACT US communique, to no avail...

    I've been having the same problem. There has been a flood of spam recently. It keeps me thinking I have comments and then again - more spam.

      Yes you have. Your account is also corrupted.
      Even typing on my keyboard has SUDDENLY BECOME SLUGGISH.

      I've done my. BEST TO NOTIFY THE AUTHORITIES..

      EVERY KEY I STROKE IS NOW BEING AUTO SAVED!!!!!!!

      which is CHOKING MY CPU....

        Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Billie! I unfortunately had to take a temporary break from this forum for a couple weeks. But now that I'm back, I'm doing everything in my power to solve this.

        I am not seeing any evidence of corrupted accounts, could you provide more details on who / where you're seeing such corruption?

        I am not seeing any evidence of an excess of auto saving for the posts. It is not causing me any issues. It seems to be saving approximately every 30 seconds to a minute on my end.

        I have taken action to try to remove the spam posts from the groups section. Unfortunately, I do not possess that ability myself to delete those posts. However, I did ban the users responsible for those posts.

        If you have any more concerns, please let me know!

          Thanks very much for replying to my post...

          i had around 8-10 spam posts in my FLAGGED ITEMS FOLDER.

          I only have ONE STILL THERE!

          this user:
          swtor2154

          has also GOT INTO THE ACT!

          Posting VOLUMES OF:
          Stuff I don't think is relevant to
          rhyme
          poetry or literature, of any kind.

          It's all under the GROUPS SECTION for some reason?

          THANKS HEAPS FOR RESPONDING TO MY POST!
          I REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

          I STILL have one of these SPAM ITEMS IN MY:

          FLAGGED ITEMS folder. But there was around 10.

          Thanks for helping & I will keep you informed if I find more
          SUSPECT STUFF!

          Even my keystrokes have seemed to improve now!
          So my account seems LESS CHOCKED....

          i dont know why AUTO SAVE is suddenly functioning whilst I type
          these posts? This is a new development...

          thanks for HELPING VERY MUCH.

          I WILL KEEP MY EYES OPEN.

            Actually I have ONE MESSAGE FROM JOE BOBBO still in my
            FLAGGED ITEMS stating:

            NICE TIPS FOR STORING, REMOVING & RELOCATTING TO A NEW HOME.

            This post is the PRINCIPAL CULPRIT ( I believe ).

            I am a programmer & am CERTAIN this has viral characteristics.

            This post is the ORIGINAL SOURCE of problems & it seems to
            replicafe itself!

            indeed it has been sent BY YOU!!

            So I think this PARTICULAR POST IS REPLICATING & RE-POSTING ITSELF TO MANY MANY OTHERS!

            Gary Heyes also has his FLAGGED ITEMS folder chocked with this rubbish, & I am CERTAIN THE ORIGINAL SOURCE CODE STEMS FROM A POST WITH THE TITLE:

            TIPS FOR STORING, SHIPPING & MOVING.... Etc etc

            as I said it's now sent from YOURSELF in my flagged items folder.

            This post is the SOURCE IS THE SOURCE OF ALL PROBLEMS
            I AM CERTAIN OF IT...

            the title of the post starts with:
            TIPS FOR SHIPPING...etc etc.

            GOOD LUCK REMOVING THIS VIRAL SPAM

            A D THANKS HEAPS!!!

              That flagged report was in fact generated by myself. I attempted to delete the group topic in the normal way, but I did not have the power to do so. So I flagged the post, thinking that I could perhaps delete it that way. That didn't work either. So, I contacted one of the admins last night to have them come in and fix it.

              The groups should now be cleared of all spam.
