Just noticed this problem myself when trying to figure out what ccsm setting was currently hosing my system. Maybe the spammers clicked the wrong button in ccsm, and it started the avalanche. (Sarcasm unintended.)

(Anyway, I was glad to have independent confirmation in this forum that the compiz forums were so messed up... As far as I know, it was the first time I've ever looked at them. Sure makes you think twice about forum security.)
