Not sure this is the place for it but it was my best guess for catagory. The Xamarin General Discussion Forms just got Spam Bombed by an escort service. Thought maybe a Bug report might get to someone that can fix it considering its a weekend.

Looks like its all been cleared up. For this week anyway.
Comment 2 Joseph Hill 2015-10-25 17:23:07 UTC
The forums host has been made aware of the issue (again).  We also investigating some additional spam control techniques with expect will have an impact.

Regardless, going to resolve this as there is not an appropriate way to track this vendor relationship in here.
