Mimi (heymimi) | 90 comments I'm not sure whether this is a librarian issue, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

I usually don't use the 'Creative Writing' section of this site, and when I went over there earlier today, there seems to be a lot of spamming going on.

My Japanese reading is so rusty it's almost non-existant, but these entries seem suspect to me:

there are smilar posts like this in simplified Chinese? or is it Thai?
https://www.goodreads.com/story/show_...
and this:
https://www.goodreads.com/story/show_...

Could someone with a better grasp of the used languages take a look at this and confirm my suspicions?
And if it is what it seems (advertisements for certain services), is there something we can do about this?
regards,
Mimi

This is not something librarians can help with.

Mimi (heymimi) | 90 comments Hi Arenda,

didn't think we librarians could do something about this, I was really just looking for smeone to confirm my suspicions before I reported it.

ETA reported the issue, already rceived an e-mail back that GR is taking action. I love this site.
