    Default Mods- anyone else notice

    (Not sure if this is spam or what and for some reason I can't PM right now to report, every time I try my phone weirdly freezes)
    ....That a few old threads are being bumped back into circulation over the last 24 hours? By new, first time posters? Seems really fishy. The replies seem almost robot like and all seem to be linking to websites with certain highlighted words.
    It's annoying because a lot of the time if you click on the latest post you're reading along thinking it's a new or recent thread until you go back to the OP and see it's something from 2010-13 and no longer valid.
    Just my vent 😡

    I've reported a few. I never know if they're spam but some seem quite obviously wrong.

    Same thing happened a few days ago and I reported a whole series of threads (was the wee hours of the morning so hopefully the mods got to them before they wasted too many people's time. They were similar user names but all contained links (which I would think the mods would automatically be alerted to).

    Off to find and report.

    Yeah, I've noticed. It's a pain

    Members should keep reporting so we can ban them.

    It is particularly annoying when really old threads are bumped up in this way, totally agree
