The Site admin got back to me right away.... I jumped the gun slightly..

Anyways, a spammer had signed into that site previously with the same
username and posted lots of crap - when I signed up, those posts came
back online hence my panic....

Should be fine now - interesting site ;)

DO NOT sign up at that site until the site admin fixes a major issue - I
thought it looked interesting but now I'm in an embarrassing situation.

I signed up like anyone would do and the moment I validated my email
address, postings started to showup under my account that are weeks old
- these postings are of "sexual nature" ... lovely....

Not impressed to say the least.... emailed the site admin asking
something be done...

This is similar, and available for all regions/ASNs.
