    Yeah, either hacked or a mass spam attack.

    @jason

    The new software seems to be more vulnerable to this. Is it?

    One post translated says something like, "Hey, G.I. wanna good time, short time, long time?
    I think. I haven't use Korean in, well, long time...

    Also just a heads up I do not know if it is still going on but if it is a ddos attack do not click on those links. It can possibly cause it to spread

    FYI - I still see them in Tapatalk "Trending." Not sure if there's anything you can do about that, though.

    @mkosmo If you want to make sure someone on the MC sees your post then it helps to tag them.

    @jason Tag! :)

    Oh, and, Matt. Discard Tapatalk. Problem fixed! ;)

    So, I'm curious, if this is the case, why for so is it happening so often with the new software? I don't recall it ever happening with the old. Did I just sleep better back then? :)

    We weren't getting these types of attacks in the old software. We were getting dozens (hundreds) of one-offs. Sneakier. You probably just didn't notice. These seem bad because they pour in dozens of messages when they do get one or two accounts through the gauntlet. But, overall, it's way more effective. And we tune it each time it happens. You haven't seen the Koreans around lately, have you?

    Hell I wouldn't know! Even English is my second language. And it's a damned shame I don't have a first...

    Thanks Jason.
