So glad you posted this kevin317.  I posted a message this morning, regarding the same thing, & asking for help.  Alas, my message seems to have disappeared. 


I'm going to send a message to Mr. Sweepy to see if he can help us.


Sure hope you see this and that it doesn't disappear into the hinterlands!!  LOL!!  diane

Yesterday, I sent a message to Mr. Sweepy regarding this issue and received the following response:


"We know about it and working on the problem. The hackers are coming in as new and legit members to ST.  I have delete a ton of their messages.  The problem is they have a macro that creates a new one.  Once they create the new account, I can delete their account but they can come through the cookie to post the messages.  We are working on a new solution to get rid of these ******** from Japan.


Thanks,


Mr. Sweepy"


 


My section is back to normal this morning.  It was good to know he was on top of the problem and was working hard to fix it.  Hope everyone else having issues, is now back to normal as well.  dw
