It appears that an alien spambot has attacked APC, striking the "layover" section with hundreds of unreadable posts. :mad:

I believe they are angry about the "Sponsored Posts".

So am I. :mad:

They're also taking over the major thread. Spam, spam, spam. Eggs, bacon & spam.

Should be managed now. Sorry about that.

We have been working on the ads as well. Sorry about that.

What was their sinister purpose? Advertising a product or service is pointless if nobody can read the ad. Perhaps it was a cyber-attack by North Korea? :rolleyes:

I like to think that North Korea got a bigger fish to fry than messing w/ our Community... stay tuned, all items have been prioritized and we got devs working on both of them. I'll get back to all w/ an ETA.

As far as stopping the spammers though, that's something that we should have taken care of already.

Huge thanks to the mods of the Community who took care of this from the front line.

We are actively cleaning everything up. Thanks for your patience. Nick

OK, the spammy posts in the Layover section have been pruned and the users have been permanently banned.

Please share here URLs or usernames for review, and I'll take care of that, thanks All!
