Who has a ban hammer and delete powers? There's like 300 messages taking up the entire feed. Here, give them to me and I'll delete them. They're ruining the forum.

Matt has been contacted. Something like this is above the pay grade of moderators and super users. There are over 1,500 spam posts. That is too many to delete one at a time.

Did you see them this morning. I Have morning paralysis. Some people call it laziness, but I call paralysis. It was literally for over an hour of these few people(?) Just posting something repeatedly.

Wow, worse than I thought. I checked out after that. I know we get a few usually about Nike, but that was bad this morning. There weren't that many when I checked in.

No, I just got on and saw Mikes post in the live chat. Lol same with the paralysis. 1500 posts is a bit much to delete one by one I guess.

Kid mornings. Though, I had to be at work at 0700. 30 minute ride. 15 mins early. So leave at 0615. 15 extra minutes to get geared up for the motorcycle. I was up at 0500. I hated mornings.

Yep was quite the surprise. I always start the morning by clicking the link to see new posts. Just so everyone knows it limits the results to the last 1,000 posts =). The bad thing is I had to dig to find all of the stuff I wanted to see. The joys of the internet.

I'm dubbing this event "Spampocolypse". How Matt is going to clean it all up is beyond me.

Agreed, that's what I do in the morning. I look to see if there's anything I can learn or help with it. I learned that non English symbols give me a headache first thing in the morning.

This is penance for me. I was trolling people on whisper the other day.
