    Default Anyone else seeing a whole bunch of Chinese (?) character threads in the "General Fragrance" forum?

    All of them seem to be posted by one user, dsfdsf876.

    A massive spam attack, more than one username. I think I cleaned them up for now.

    Another dozen or so spam threads just appeared. You have some hackers targeting this site and generating random accounts/threads. They're going to render the site unusable (perhaps their goal) if you don't find a way to stop them.
