Is anyone else having what looks like a scam? This is the second day I've been having trouble with this site.

I too see these weird posts, Robyn.
All are of a recent date and by a Dave
Friedman. Could this be caused by Mike Schmidt?

I'm looking at new posts and it's filled with old ones from 2008. I think you're right that something funky is going on on AN.

It does seem to be slowly getting back to normal, with just a few still a little out of whack.

Sorry folks, it looks as though a spammer slipped through and posted over 3000 spam posts using Dave's ID. The AN tech people had to clear them because there were so many that Tina and I couldn't get them all quickly. I suspect that some of the IT work that's going on behind the scenes just left a vulnerability and somebody took advantage of it. Maybe that just proves how many spammers AN catches every day, to know that when one does get through it can generate so much trouble. Hopefully things will get back to normal.

I was on AN about 2 wks ago and got an official looking draft from home land security ( not! scammer) that locked up my computer and unless I payed them 350 dollars it would not get fixed needless to say they aint getting a dime this all happened while I was doing research on alpaca health I think AN got hacked

Did you alert AN, Darlene? I'm sure their IT department would want to check it out.
