    To SC members, I just sent a PM to Amin and Luke to notify them of new threads from today with Japanese only characters. They are very suspicious for hacked threads. I first only noticed one, opened it up to find all foreign script and an embedded link. I didn't click anything and left the thread, and then realized that there were multiple ones.

    Just a warning to avoid those threads unless they are ok'd by Amin or Luke, especially with the recent hacks.

    I don't think those are Hacked threads... they are probably just spammers spamming around. Just report them as spam.

    Right. Hit that little triangular report this post button whenever you see something like this.

    Thankfully we have more members than spammers and can nail them, if we report them.

    Thanks for the clarification- with the recent site hack, I wasn't sure what to make of them, and forgot about the spam button (thanks for the reminder). Sorry if I overreacted...:blush:
