We've been spammed

Mods, please check out the spam post in the "Florida's color shields" thread. I already used the "report post" function.

Wonder if that particular spammer found us through the postings about crypto in the now-locked scams thread?

Government would be tolerable if not for politicians and bureaucrats.

I saw this yesterday or the day before (6:xx AM EST), but under a different account with 1 post rather than a hijacked account. The Telegram username appears to be the same.

Interesting. The account was active in 2017, posting halfway normal things and failing to upload images properly. Then it was inactive for a few years before posting the one spam message. My guess is the user had a shitty password and a spammer was able to guess what it was.
