The domain name near the end was altered from what I wrote. No "edited by" tag was added naming the admin or moderator responsible for the edit, and furthermore the edit appears to be well outside the scope of what admins and moderators should be doing with the power to edit others' posts.

Looks like we've been hacked.

That makes this URGENT.

Same for me.

It would be nice to know the rules (I've just checked both the guidelines and the terms of use, again), but I can't find anything about this. I can understand that some content needs to be altered or removed from public view. There is a whole range of stuff we don't want, ranging from annoying (spam) to criminal (fraud, death threats, child porn, etc). The latter is clear, the first is subjective. Changing content without clear rules (user expectation) for no clear reason is just very, very bad practice. I don't think the forum is hacked. More probable we are hacked by the forum. It was not a pleasant experience. I hope there is a good explanation and hopefully also a solution.

Alef:
It certainly is some automatic engine not a hacking. (exept if hackers would want to hide fractal images, and I would doubt that) Say if in FB you 'll post certain words they will be delated and you could be baned for 3 days unless you disagree and are re tested. Links to certain sites is just automaticaly not allowed. I don't know what or why but perhaps it is related to that specific site.

is pretty self explanatory.
There alredy was some minor problems with images shared from outdated site.  Admin recomends to use only site upload service https://fractalforums.org/forum-help-and-support/31/images-suspected-by-malwared-files/4220

HAAAACKS!

Whoever did that will face justice. And justice shall be served eventually.

Whoops, I guess my reaction was overexaggerated, sorry for posting this in the first place.
