Just pages of spam; oriental text, so no idea what it was saying.
C'mon site admins you can block bots!

    I thought this new platform was meant to minimise disruption by spam?

     If they get 5 spam reports they'll vanish so get clicking

    There are so many I’m bored of reporting them.
    why do people keep viewing but not reporting?

    I must have done about just 50 of them, it's getting boring now.

    Yes, I agree loads of views but not enough reporting!

    Think I will find something other than this forum to read... hopefully it will be sorted later today.

    I've also reported loads of spam on credit card board. But new spam posts seem to appear even faster than I can report them

    I've been reporting them too but they keep on coming. I translated one of them and they appear to be selling fake degrees and diplomas from American, Australian and Canadian universities and the like. It would be handy to be able to report the user and not just each post.

    I reported about 10 of the posts in the home selling section between 3 and 4am this morning.

    The spamming has started again on the credit card board.
