System not updating anything

I think the entire zon system is frozen or they are doing some major something not allowing things to update.
Everything from Community messages, AMS ads, etc., is acting strangely.
Usually, this forum stays current.
Has anyone else noticed the big lag?

I haven't noticed anything. Of course, I also haven't tried to update any of my titles, either.

I've made a number of posts to the forum within the last hour, and I've nuked 40-50 spam posts, and all those seemed to go okay.

???

I haven't even seen any spam come in for hours. Earlier today it was really thick x 10.

Added note: I haven't seen any of your posts show up either.

Hmmm. Time to exit & re-enter browser? Or maybe even do a system re-boot?

Sorry, not getting any real great ideas ...

I had the PC off for at 3 hours and since back on have rebooted twice plus done a CCleaner cleanout.
Possibly it is web problems in my end of the country. Life is such a joy - NOT!

Sales updates for me seemed hours behind, and the forums also appeared slow. Saw no spam, however. You guys are too fast on the trigger for me to get in a shot.

Earlier today I did ask Customer Service to please consider blocking any post that has an 8 in the subject area.
Maybe they are and it is kicking in.

I wish that was the case. I nuked about 60 last night, between about 6pm and midnight UK time, and bumped into another 20 or so that someone just beat me to. Another twenty thirty in the last fifteen minutes.

They just don't let up.

If we click on them to report them, maybe an ad company gets $$ with each click. Like AMS ads. Maybe someone who works at Amazon is letting them get through. It's litter. Thank you for helping. I wonder what other websites do.

I don't think anyone is letting them get through. I base that on the night when THOUSANDS of spam messages came thru on all forums except the last one. I think the system tends to get overloaded with it and there are some that get missed. We did get the ones with '800' in the subject area to stop. Now if we can just get the ones that have a single '8' taken out with their auto system, it wouldn't be so thick.
