I have seen these kind of "strange" posts (posted by unknown) today on "Web Forms" section. May i know what is the reason behind this? Also request moderators/admin to take necessary steps

From what I can tell, these are generally temporary posts that might appear until they are populated with the appropriate information for the question. It could be the result of some kind of race-condition or perhaps something different entirely.

They are most often posts that end up getting re-routed to the moderation queue and won't get populated with the relevant information until they are approved. Or in other cases, they are the remnants of spam posts that have been deleted. At the time you
reported these posts there were some issues with the moderations tools which is probably what caused the ghost post issue.

Thanks for the report. At the time of the report there was some infrastructure maintenance going on which threw off the site caching, making this issue a bit worse than what we typically see on the site.
