The first half dozen are in Chinese or could be Japanese? What has happened?

My thoughts too!

hildajenniJ Sat 12-May-18 09:52:04

I've reported them to GNHQ.

Mine too,

gillybob Sat 12-May-18 09:52:59

There were as many as 8 earlier, then 2 and now we seem to be overrun again . confused

Mail order brides or a dodgy escort agency?

Welshwife Sat 12-May-18 09:54:15

I counted 11 posts - have reported two of them

Izabella Sat 12-May-18 09:54:15

Hackers. Don't click on them. Some I reported have been taken down so assume GNHQ are on the case. Don't be surprised if they take it down. It's what we would do with our own webpages when this happens. If someone else can contact GN Again I am dashing out

I've emailed GNHQ about this invasion of hieroglyphs.

14 at last count! Can anybody read them?!

Panache Sat 12-May-18 10:06:25

I have also joined in by reporting yet some more............we are being invaded.............angry.........and I for one am not overjoyed.

I think it may be Korean rather than Chinese or Japanese (although what do I know - the only thing I know in a foreign language is how to ask for a coffee in Spanish!)

henetha Sat 12-May-18 10:10:27

Help! My PC has gone mad! What's all this Chinese or Japanese stuff about? Can I get rid of it?

Jalima1108 Sat 12-May-18 10:11:45

Cherrytree - when I think of Japan I think of cherry trees!
(or vice versa)

Jalima1108 Sat 12-May-18 10:14:20

Yes, could be Korean but I have no idea what they say.

MawBroon Sat 12-May-18 10:15:50

I had to laugh though at the names, one was called something like “Dungsling” grin
They need a better translator!

Jalima1108 Sat 12-May-18 10:17:29

one is offering massage I think!

Panache Sat 12-May-18 10:17:47

With names like that, they obviously have no interpreter eh?

If only I could read the messages I might feel less "invaded!!"

MawBroon Sat 12-May-18 10:21:22

At the very least grin jalima
However, it must be very annoying for GNHQ as it will be keeping them from their brewbrew and cupcakecupcake

Jalima1108 Sat 12-May-18 10:25:06

Who is working the weekend shift?

MawBroon Sat 12-May-18 10:26:21

Maybe they have been invaded!

Jalima1108 Sat 12-May-18 10:29:03

Are we being invited to the meeting in Sinapore?

ninathenana Sat 12-May-18 10:30:42

I've reported them too Bluebelle reported the first lot.
I X'd the advert at the bottom of one and got a Google message in the same language. I then tried it on a members post and had the same message.
We're being overtaken.......HELP !!
