    Resolved [RESOLVED] I do believe we are being spammed

    And by "we" I mean VBF... of which I'm not really a part of... I am a part of the community, but not the behind the scenes...

    At any rate, when I use the New Posts link, I get one half-rendered thread... when I look at the forums listing page, I see a number of "recent posts" by the same user with an arabic title... and if I go into any of those forums, the page yaks on the first post with the arabic subjects.

    * I also don't respond to friend requests. Save a few bits and don't bother. I'll just end up rejecting anyways.*
