Posts being replaced

There seems to be a serious bug on this forum for the past week or so. Several post written by different users have been replaced with other, which they say that they have not written. Here are two examples:

It therefore is more plausible that Wawrinka rested himself for Wimbledon as opposed to Mahut actually beating him. Also if you have been paying attention to tournaments before slams over the years, you would have realized that every year is the same with players always using these tournaments for somewhat of a target practice. Mahut would never have got a better chance to ever win anything in his career again so he was like a stubborn dog holding on to a bone. It certainly was not worth Warinka expending more energy than was necessary to wrestle that bone from him. Hewitt is in a similar situation to Mahut who was looking to win a title by any means in this late stage of his career. Yes, he has the form, but may not have the tenacity to sustain it going into wimbledon. I am not saying Wawrinka will win for certain, but rather we can expect a much much better showing than he did with Mahut. Can I appeal to you to remain on the forum to help improve our 20% strike rate??
What the?! I most certainly did not write this crap! Is there a bug in the forum? My first day pick was Mahut, I do not know where this rubbish came from. I went back through the thread when I saw that I was not in the list on the first page.

If you allow it,

Creepy stuff
I believe I have seen such out of place posts elsewhere too in the last couple of days, but can't recall where.

Federer: "I do believe the future is a double handed backhand."

That post is supposed to contain my doubles draw for Doubles FITD. Because of this bug I couldn't participate in Wimbledon.

Re: Posts being replaced

Another incident today, here:

Upside of young American players?
My post, #4.

This was not a previously changed post. I changed it when I saw the replacement as I didn't like what was being said there. I only had to do "edit - save" to get the original back.

I can add that I had forum connection issues when I wrote the post that was later exchanged. I remember it. Suddenly the "Post Reply" button was nowhere to be seen and things didn't work properly. I pressed where it was supposed to be, however, and the post came up. Afterwards I had no more such problems.

Re: Posts being replaced

Look at what happened to me it is in the DataBase Error Thread because it happened while we were having a lot of DataBase Errors yesterday. But it sounds a lot like what is being reported here!

Re: Posts being replaced

Steve for a while the database error was any and everywhere I tried to go on the form! If it would have been only in one certain tread or even section of the Forum, I could tell you the exact location, but it wasn't! And I went off the MTF site thinking if I got off and got back on that might help it, but then I got Database Errors trying to get back on the Forum!
