They removed the first ones.

I messaged a mod(in a non Ledge way) that it was blowing up again, but didn't hear back.

Notice how the sender uses several different variations on the same name? I hope that doesn't make it more difficult to block this as*hole.

I've contacted Michele and meanwhile canceled all the posts that I could and banned the profiles with the same IP adress of the spammers but I don't think it's over like this.

I believe the ledge has been under attack for awhile. The site takes forever to load and someone said there are all kinds of ads that are hidden on it and that is the reason for the longer load time. I hope it can get fixed.

Sorry, I cant remember his exact name but I'm sure it was something like that. I thought he'd bought the site off Michele but though I looked I cant find the single post he made.

Edit: just found it; Brooks/RacerGT.
I was along the right lines.

The site owner isn't also the administrator from what I know.

I went through and deleted many suspicious users. Hopefully that will clear this up.

All very odd! What have we done to deserve this?

Thanks for sorting it out Michele. (And everyone else!)

How did anyone not notice there were at least 3 user
names that were similar? How many jams does it take?

1. Were our passwords compromised?
2. Chrome warns us that this site is not secure.

If you have an active email associated with this site,
I'd be concerned.

Yes site takes FOREVER to load. I thought it was something with my flash. I updated and it still took forever. Anyone else still having this problem? Plus I see adds.
