New Post Abuse?
Some Korean (probably Chinese) spammer posting many threads today (1/21/2016)

Apparently something happened today as Slackware forum (and some others) have been overrun by a spammer. Kindly check your new thread posting validation because it seems someone got over it.

Sample threads:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...41#post5483541
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...68#post5483568
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...26#post5483526

You might also consider augmenting your mod team to deal with the fallout.

Google translates the website page as Korean, so probably a Korean spammer.

shows .kr (Korea) links.

The sheer volume is what concerns me.
20+ pages shows https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...-8/page21.html
It certainly gets my Security haunches "up".
