Maybe it is my system but for the last couple days I have attempted to access TTOL, I have received crazy posted threads that seem to go on forever. If I log out and back in it may happen several more times before I get into normal TTOL. Anyone else have a problem?

Have reported these threads the last 2 mornings, the mods are very quick to delete them once informed

There should not be any problem accessing TTOl, at least not that I am aware of.
There has been a rash of spam posts Monday night and also Tuesday night. There were several pages of nothing but spam this morning but if you scrolled through it, you would have found regular posts. It takes some time to delete multiple spam posts. I did the best I could yesterday morning but I needed some help this morning.

Uksimonusa, I sent you a private message. Click on the flashing envelope.

Thank you.


J.D.

Is the spammer creating an account?

Why would humans be spamming your forum and how can this make money? Most forum spammers aren't trying to get you to buy something, they are attempting to get higher rankings in search engines by creating lots of links from your pages to their own site.

Or infecting you with a virus.

Correct. Saw all those numerous postings by about 4 different names any didn't want to open any of them for fear of getting a virus. Say some did. Hope they didn't pick one up.

I did the same (didn't open) but wondered if it was somehow just my system. I suppose hacking/annoying miseries have company.
I suppose there is no way of avoiding this.
