janus_zonstraal, no I do not see question marks there, nor unapproved posts.
I see the topic as normal in the list, started by normal user. But when trying to access that topic, I get that error stating topic wouldn't exist (even though it was just seen at the list of topics, with the details of how many posts etc along it).
Lumby Burgesrtushie, no, that wasn't the case: Like John connor (great movie by the way
) pointed out, the topic was started by normal user before the spammers got to forum. Then, spammers had posted a reply to that topic at some point, but the original topic was not started by those spammers (there were those too, but they were deleted as expected).
So it seems odd. From the list it seems all is OK and topics are still there. But when clicking their name, there is that error as if the topic wasn't there.
