Does anyone know why that jerk and/or those jerks, keep bombing the forums with gibberish?
I paint the pavement.  It's what I do.  Check it out on Instagram, @Chalkarts

The forum software (SimpleMachines Forum v2.0.15) is very old (2017), out of date, and insecure. Hence vulnerable to spambots. Eventually the volunteer moderators clean it up, but that doesn't happen right away.

They're probably using Cyrillic or something which fails on the simple encoding.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

Bingo to all of that. I try to get it as soon as possible, but I do have to sleep, eat, and work sometimes. AJ is pretty good at getting stuff when I don't.

Troll Deckers are the best because you can identify as an Internet Troll.
RPG mechanics exist to give structure and consistency to the game world, true, but at the end of the day, you’re fighting dragons with algebra and random number generators.

I also noticed it and basically reported it, in order to have it deleted after some time at least :)
