Bug: Gibberish all over the forum

You've probably noticed already, but there is a fair amount of gibberish posts on the forum all of a sudden. If you'd provide a way for us to report such threads and posts, I'm sure we'd all chip in to help point them out.

It should only take a few seconds. Why is there no report button? On every other forum I use, the process is "click Report button, type Spam, click Send." Users should not have to muck around copying bookmarks and looking up moderator names to perform this basic function.
