This site has been compromised.

Hello,

Over the past week or so, this site has been compromised by trolls posting code and other stuff.

Understandably, I would ask the moderators here and the administrators here to take immediate action.

Over the years, I have been among the "founding members" and find it a very "uncomfortable" place to post new threads or to respond to threads.

Please notify me via PM or email when you get this crap cleaned up!

Best,

Chris

Chris,
So that was why we had to change Passwords. Thank you Moderators for action in cleaning up the trolls.

Thanks Shane,

I was still getting the trolls after I changed my password. I will keep on the lookout for them!

Now tell me what language is being posted in this post?

I just flushed three more Vietnamese ads this morning. They're driving us nuts, Chris, and we're deleting and banning them as fast as they show up and we see them. It's literally an inundation here.

Hello Jer,

Thanks for all of your hard work and my son identified the language as Vietnamese. (My son, Andrew is heading to South Korea in a couple of months to teach English abroad). At first, I thought it was Thai. Now you've got the detective brain going on in me. These ads coincide with the purchase of the site with the new owners?

It doesn't make a "whit" of difference of who actually owns the site with me and I am very, very happy that they are keeping it going! (Thanks folks!).

In any event, thank you Mod's for your hard/good work!

Best,

Chris

Chris, those of us who had 'adventure holidays' in the land of water buffaloes and Nuoc Mam during the 1960s and 1970s recognised the language instantly.

I for one had three such 'all expenses paid trips'. The first began in the middle of Tet 1968.
