From a quick look, it looks like base64 encoding. Invented back in the dialup/uucp days when transport was not always 8bit clean so things were encoded to make sure only transportable characters were used.

I have a message in a moderation queue. It's from a member (everyone is

click to review it, it's not legible. This is all I see in the message
excerpt:

I feel like I've seen other messages that look encoded/illegible in
moderation, though I don't have other examples right now. What can cause
this?

For what it's worth, the sender is a speaker of a language that uses a
different character set, so if that's possible cause, that might be the
reason here.

Thanks,
Matt
