Do you have any evidence that the site is actually compromised vs. some persistent spammers posting crap? The site has virtually no moderation and it could be that the owner has better things to do this holiday weekend than banning a never-ending stream of spammer accounts.

I think it is beyond a persistent spammer. The log in procedure does not work. You have to click on search then are re-directed to another page for log-ins. Also, have you seen any regulars posters lately? Everything you see now is Viagra Pushers with many names..........

The choice is yours, continue signing in with your user name and password and posting or do as I have done assume the Web Site has been compromised and start taking security measures.

Interesting...have not been there for a while

Seems like a waste of effort for someone to compromise that site as it has such a limited following....better to attack a real site. Maybe it is a practice run to see how the owner deals with it.

Must either be those pesky Russians or ticked off Trumpers taking revenge on JB.

It had turned in a toxic political pit. I would not be surprised if the problems being experienced are are intentional so the site can just die itself rather than be closed by management.
