Question Why is the site suddenly in Japanese?

I was on the site for a long time over the last two days but when I signed on this morning, Everything is in Japanese writing. I've tried 3 different browsers and they are all the same. What did I do, or is it the site? Thanks for any info.
Never had this happen b4.

That would be because spammers are posting 20+ threads.

Maybe they should make the forum invitation only so the spambots won't be able to log on and fill the threads with junk.

We can all help the moderators by reporting the post. It's really easy . . . just click the red triangle (4th button from the left at the bottom of post), then type "spam" in the next pop up window.

We are all here and working as hard as we can to ban the spammers. We have also alerted the technical team to see if there are other measures that can be taken. Please remember, the team are all volunteers and we are doing the best we can to clean things up.

To help us, click on the report button. As BBT.Girls said, it is the red triangle. This automatically sends it to us. If you see multiple posts by the same spammer, you only need to report one. When we ban someone, it will remove all posts that were posted by the spammer. Please don't quote spammers in your own post and then mark it as spam, because then the spam will remain in your quoted post when someone is banned and we have to go back and try to remove it from your posts manually.

Thanks for all of your help to make things better at AFC. We appreciate you!

Looks like I am the only one quoting the spammers. I do that so I can check to see if they are gone or not. I will not be quoting or reporting anymore.
