Many spam messages were coming in today from bogus new users. They were advertisements for free movie streaming. I blocked the users in question and hid all the questions (I also deleted one user, but perhaps that was a mistake, I left the rest of the users blocked for analysis purposes).
Perhaps we need to disable new user creation, this is manual spamming. There is also someone taking the site down for maintenance, and I don't know if it's a spammer that hacked the site or Polarkernel, Dilaton, Dimension10, etc.
