global politics forum is being manipulated.........

Hey Folks,
I think we are under attack. I have tried to post in the global politics forum. It no worky. I can type two characters and then it goes bonkers. I put the cursor back on the line, two more characters and zing, it breaks. I think someone is making sure we cannot discuss global politics, maybe the russians, or north korea, or china.

Mostly I am posting here to let the mods know I ma having an issue with the global politics forum.

It may be a flash issue. Is there a dark add banner with a red arrow near the top of the page under the PC logo or at the bottom of the page?. When that flash screen is there ( I don't know what it is advertising) you can not type in the response box more than two characters. It is happening on my Chrome on my Powermac.

If you close the boxes you can post but it comes back. Disable flash or try another browser. Doesn't seem to happen on all my other computers.

The add banner is a black rectangle with a red arrow in the center but no words.

I just was able to post there.

If someone was messing with us, I doubt they would just pick on one less-active forum. And I can't see us being messed with anyway. Too small an audience.

You't be surprised at how many of the spammers who try to register here use Russian I.P. addresses.
