What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

Spammer.

Just getting the post count up so it can spam its sig. When it realized that wasn't working, it's most recent post put the spam directly in the message. The other four posts are useless, not relevant to the OP's request, or are copy/paste jobs from other posts on the Internet.

Edit: Apparently sigs are displayed after only five posts or less now. Seemed to me that the old fifteen post requirement helped keep down the display of sig spam. Too bad that requirement was dropped.

Badu Spyder is interfering with the main screen and represents a page which appears as if someone has logged in without the text input rectangles for password and name. This has happened befiore.
The only way I know how to stop this is to block the IP but apparently they have found a way to mask themselves as Mozillazine IP range as it appears in the traffic monitor.
So far the way around this has been to clear the history after blanking the screen and do a search for any detritus.
A reload using the proper url brings up the appropriate screen with the right IP range numbers.

URLs to block = baidu.jp; baidu.com.
IP numbers are all over the place thought the true range is in the 119.0.0.0/119.255.255.255 spectrum
Most of the 221, 222 and 202 hits are from hackers on the mainland.
