Wierd posts


Recently really weird things have been coming up in the SM discussion board. Whenever I check today's posts, I often see really strange things unrelated to science appear and disappear within several seconds. Some of the posts in question are things like "Brand new Nike Airs for sale" or "Ralph Lauren Polo shirts". This just leaves me confuzzled, because these topics don't belong here at all. Anyone know what the hell is going on?

@JAVA Please tell me how that works.
Spambots makes sense and since I wouldn't accept Nike anything as a gift or wear Ralph Lauren for less than 5 figures why are these a**holes hitting us? Polverone could you backtrack and find these jerks and forward a virus to them?

A spambot can be written with java script. But I highly doubt its that. There are a billion variables that could be causing this. Security needs to be upped a bit in the coding and perhaps something rearranged. That is up to the owners though.
