    Hey guys,

    We've recently been hit with a few (strangely topical) spam messages that have gotten through the spam filter. If you notice any weird links in a thread, please use the report button to bring it to the mods' attention. And don't copy/paste the links, of course.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: I've found out that the report button has been broken. This hasn't been reported, because the report button is broken. Feel free to @ or DM me on the discord for now instead, as long as it's related to spam or other urgent forum-related issues, until I get the button working.

    I've been wavering on whether to report them or not. The usernames all seem to be similar so they're kind of easy to spot but the posts in themselves aren't breaking any rules. It seems likely they're an attempt to get a "legitimate" post out there so that spam posts later might get through.

    The way it looks (also from the reactions from people) is that the messages are edited later with shady links, it seems you're right.
