    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:

    Yeah, don’t you just hate hackers/spammers? We have implemented an email verification now, but the new posts are coming from “sleeper” users. They all signed up mid-November and never posted until recently. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for bringing it to my attention. I have to keep you ladies happy. 😀 Have a merry Christmas!
