Copycat Postings on Robot Sites?

I just discovered one of my scores posted on 6 different member accounts.  Each of the members has a random name, and only my single score posted therein.  Each of the accompanying score information appears to be in Korean (per Google translate), and when translated appears to be gibberish pertaining to porn/sex sites.    

My original posting can be found at : https://musescore.com/rebecca_rufin/eslava-o_sacrum_convivium

Here are the illegitimate copycat postings that I have found (so far):

What is going on here?  Some sort of robot virus?  Has anyone else encountered this?  Is there any way to prevent it?

All score descriptions now lost formatting

I don't know if you (staff) saw this in the other thread, but either this is one heck of a serious bug or a new policy which will probably drive me and many others off the site, and I'd like to know.  Paragraph formatting in score descriptions has been lost in all scores, including those many years old, including very very lengthy ones I entered years ago which are tutorials.   Please let us know if this is going to be fixed, and if so, when, and if not, it will be a big change for all of us. Thanks.

Promises (Quest for the Ink Machine)

Moon is my OC. This my first QFTIM fanfic so it might not be any good. Hope you enjoy!!
*******************************************

I woke up to the sound of violent coughing. I turn to Boris and I see that he was still asleep. Sighing, I walked over to the bathroom and knocked on the door. “Bendy?” I called for my brother. “M-Moon...i-it hurts…” he responded as I opened the door. I grabbed a stack of washcloths and started to wipe the ink off his face. “I know..” I told him wiping tears from my eyes.
*Later…*
Bendy was still coughing up ink when Boris came in. I was holding onto Bendy with tears streaming down my eyes. Boris ran over and put his arms around us. “Bendy!!” he had screamed when he ran over. “G-Guys..I-I'm sorry…” Bendy told us as ink started to cover his eyes. 
As I sobbed, Cuphead and Mugman walked in. Cups grabbed Bendy and started to cry. “Don't you dare give up!!” he yelled hugging him. Meanwhile, Mugs hugged me. “Shh...it's ok…” he told me. 
Felix appeared from behind the door and pulled me close. Mugs looked at him. “Mugman, I'll take Moon to get help. You and Cuphead need to calm her brothers down.” Felix calmly stated pointing to Bendy and Boris. I glanced up at him. “Mr. Felix…” I hugged him.

*Little later…”

When we got back, Cuphead looked at us sadly. “Uh...Cup?” Felix glanced at him. “Is everything alright?” I asked. Cup sighed. “We need to find those parts. AND FAST.” he explained. My eyes widened. “But is he ok?” I was frantic. He nodded as he wiped tears from his eyes. “Boris and Mugs are with him.” 
I hugged him. “Thank you so much!!” I smiled. He smiled back. “No prob, now get over there before they wonder where you are.” I nodded and ran toward the room. I stopped when I saw Boris crying. “Boris, are you ok?” I asked him.
He nodded and turned to Bendy. “You tell her.” he told our brother. Bendy sighed. “Sis, you need to know something.” he said pulling me into a hug. “If it wasn’t for Mugman, I would’ve died.” he told me looking away. “Does that mean Mugs fixed the machine?” I questioned with a smile on my face. 
He shook his head sadly. “No...I could still die from this thing.” he replied holding me tighter. I turned to Mugman. “Thank you.” I said smiling. Mugs smiled back and blushed. “Oh, it was nothing.” he replied as he tried to hide his blush. “Wait, then why was Boris crying?” I asked.
Boris hugged me. “I was crying because I was so scared...I thought…” he answered as he started to tear up. Bendy walked over to him and put his hands on Boris’s shoulders. “I’m fine bro. No need to get emotional on us.” he said smiling sadly. I hugged Bendy. Next thing I knew, tears were streaming down my face. “This is a big deal Bendy! What if we lost you?!” I cried. 
Bendy looked at me with tears in his eyes. “I-I didn’t think about that.” he told me as I held him tighter. “You should have!!” I yelled. To be honest, I didn’t know why I was yelling. I immediately covered my mouth. “Sorry…” I apologized looking away. He hugged me. “I’m not mad.” he told me smiling.
I hugged him back. “I-It’s just that…” I couldn’t finish my sentence because I was crying again. “Hey, I’m fine. I won’t give up JUST yet.” Bendy said calmly. I gave him a look. “Don’t give up EVER.” I reminded him. “Okay okay...I won’t give up. Happy?”
I nodded. Bendy chuckled. “I don't know what I would do without you guys.” he sighed. Boris glanced at me and I glanced at him back. We both knew that,without us, Bendy would have already died. I wiped the tears that started to form in my eyes. “Guys?” he asked as he looked at us. Boris and I hugged our brother.
*3 weeks later…*
We had just found another piece of the machine. I turned to Bendy and saw that his illness was getting worse. I put my hand on his shoulder. “Do you want to take a break?” I asked him. He shook his head softly. “I-I’m fine sis…” he told me with his voice shaking. I gave him a look. “ We’re taking a break. NOW.” I huffed. He sighed as Felix tried to help him sit down. I sat down next to him and pulled out some washcloths. 
I don't know how much more I can take, I thought as I wiped Bendy's face. He groaned and I looked at Mugman. Mugs nodded and turned to the others. “Let’s keep going guys. Moon’s got this.” he told them. They nodded and followed him. Felix didn’t leave. “I can’t leave you two here like this.” he said to me. “Fine...I could use some help anyways.” I smiled softly.
He grabbed some washcloths and started to help me. Bendy coughed harshly. “Don't give up bro…” I begged with tears in my eyes. Felix wiped his eyes. My brother looked at him weakly. “A-Are you crying?” he asked Felix. Felix nodded as more tears streamed down his face.  Bendy sat up and hugged him. I started to tear up but I was able to hide it. Felix hugged him back and sobbed.
I hugged them and started to cry too. Bendy sighed and put his hand on my head. I still sobbed. He sat up and tried to calm me down. “I'm fine…” he told me calmly. “Ok…” I wiped my tears. He smiled sadly and pat my head. “Anyways...Let's find the others.” my brother told us. “Yeah…” I agreed as I skipped over to our friends.

Issues with Score Playback in the Windows Desktop Version (REALLY annoying!!!)

I have been using MuseScore for years now, but this issue has made me so frustrated and angry that it is seriously making me consider switching software. :/

This problem only started happening recently, so I think it must have started happening either with the latest update or the one before that. The issue is as follows - when I'm writing or editing sheet music, I often like to go and playback the last few bars to make sure everything sounds okay. So what do I do? I click the measure I want to start on, and then hit spacebar. For years, this has worked perfectly and allowed me to get a quick preview/snipet of the audio of the section I am working on. However, NOW when I do this, any one of these things happens: 1) the playback will start from some random measure in the sheet music (this happens the most often); 2) the playback will start at the beginning of the piece (more rare, but happens); 3) the playback will play the first note of the measure I clicked, and then stop and not go any further (also VERY common now); or 4) it will actually do what I want it to and start playing from the spot I clicked. However, #4 (the CORRECT functionality) only happens about 1/6 tries, which is INCREDIBLY debilitating if you are a fast sheet music writer like me and want to do lots of short previews frequently. This has effectively cut my efficiency in half (at least!), and has made me want to pull out my hair in frustration on numerous occasions.

Has anyone else been having these problems, or is it just my client having issues? Either way, I NEED to find a solution soon or I am going to need to find another program to use. Thanks.
