    Has anyone noticed an influx of spam posts on MR lately? These mosts usually contain multiple URLs and have nothing to do with the section they're posted in.

    This happens every day. We're pretty quick to get rid of them, but sometimes there isn't' anyone of us online and you guys see more of it. Plus, the spammers hit us harder some days more than others.

    When you see them, report them and we'll get rid of as soon as we can. :)

    They seem to occur early in the morning and there's usually a number of moderators active and we try to zap them ASAP but if you see one as mentioned report it so we can deal with them with extreme prejudice :)
