I was here last night as the dozens of spam messages were coming in. Gazooks!

Truly sorry you had/have to deal with that.

Thank you!. I tried to move them, but they were posting new ones, faster than I could move them to garbage.

Glad they are gone.

Yes, I moved a few to the garbage, but gave up when I saw there were a ton and notified Leaf. But it looks like the forum is messed up...I only see a few topics.

Thanks Leaf.  Love this site.  I've learned a lot here... in the last 9 years or so.

I don't understand the whole "essay" spam thing anyways and why they come here.  Weird.

They all had the same message graphic, even though there were some 8-10 different names on the posters. Yep, truly weird.

One thread that disappeared was about Adobe's goofy contributor dashboard. I was hoping to get some response to my post there from Mat so may need to start that thread over, if it's permanently gone.

Just go into the individual forum sections.  They just got bumped off the front page by the spam.

Thanks for the tip. I just did that and found it.

Hope Adobe can get our dashboards at least functioning as well as they were waaay back in 2018!

That's because the front page only shows the newest posts from the last 2 days.. but most of the newest posts are deleted so it is now confused...  It will return to normal soon.

Typical. People always attack during the vulnerable times such as holidays.  ::)
