    Yes it's some spammer(s). I just reported seeing it in Motherboards. It all got wiped out and the user accounts deleted. Mods are on it.

    I saw a bunch of posts in Chinese as well, only worse than what you shared. Thought "WTF?"

    Chinese spammers. We get to them as quickly as we can. Unfortunately, we have to sleep. :)
