Why do I suddenly see a lot of Chinese documents in 'All Items' after opening a public one

My 'All items' is filled with hundreds of Chinese documents. They're mostly from one author, who created a similar public document I viewed just before this started--but I have NOT subscribed to his documents or feeds, and the documents are NOT included in "Shared with me," and are NOT included in "Folders shared with me." This author creates a lot of new documents that continue to be added to "All items," and this has become a big problem. My browser & operating system are Windows 7 and Chrome.

Oh dear. He probably scraped your email from the doc of his that you viewed. However, I'm puzzled that they are not appearing in the Sahred wtih me lists. If you check the Share options on one of them what do you see? Let's hope the Google Guides contact you off-forum then you can report this user if you consider the docs to be spam.

In general though, there is nothing you can do to stop someone who has your email address from sharing documents with you, even spam ones.
