I noticed that too. Maybe his account has been hacked or maybe he did it himself out of spite over something. Problem is that this kind of thing can't be stopped if moderators don't have modding powers like banning or blocking an account.

I can't believe that anybody but Robby himself did this. 249 posts in this forum all changed to Subject "x" and Content "xxx".

Edit: Typically what a bored kid would do.
Can the content be recovered? We don't want this kind of thing to start happening regularly. And I remember that not so very long ago a series of messages was edited to add spam links, don't think it was the same guy, but his post count was in the 200s as well, IIRC. Na, that was gizmo.

Not as far as I know.

Theoretically this could only be done by an Administrator, Moderator or the user himself (or someone knowing his user name and password). Thus my vote for the latter.

When I started on this forum I did answer a lot of his questions. That result in that he send his complete project to me and I helped him a little with somethings.

I don't know if he still use the same email address bit I did not get an error message. We will see if he give an answer and what.

When I sent him an email it bounced. Ed may be able to restore the content, but no one else is likely to be able to do so.

Hello

Did not bounced when I send him a email. I think I have an other address. I can not be sure he looks to the address I use.

I believe that the desired action will differ depending on whether the user did this or if the account was somehow hacked. The later seems unlikely since a spammer would have posted something more dire than three Xs.
