Hi Andy,

Someone took over the entire forum for "General Notary Topics". What is going on? Thanks, Joan

Yeah...I got tired of deleting them - the more I deleted them the faster they were recreated...

This is the ONLY forum where I see this happening and I frequent 4 others regularly - they don't have this problem. What the heck is going on?

Looks like the epidemic is spreading.

This is annoying as heck.

Guess I'll stay away for a few weeks - see if it dies down and gets corrected.

My guess is that it's all autmated scripts as a result of security flaws in the forum software. phpbb is a bit of a target for that.

They have posted help for it, though. Andy, if it helps:

And it was discussed here:
