Important PSA: Don't Click on Spam Links

Post by Neuge » Sun Dec 03, 2006 2:07 pm

Avatars - May 7, 2010

Don't Click on Spam Links - Dec 3, 2006

I know I probably don't need to post this, but it looks like there are spam bots or spammers who are now creating accounts and posting spam posts. So far we are dealing with these users as they appear, while looking for a more permanent solution.

I ask that you not click on links from users you do not recognize/trust for the time being, as these links may be a danger to your PC's health.

If you notice any such links or other spam being posted, please inform me or Jagtai immediately.

Thanks!

We have taken some measures to try and stop automated bot registrations, as this seems to be becoming a common occurrence. Please let us know immediately if you notice more bot users joining/posting.

Spam bots are once again (or still?) on the loose. Please remember to not click any links that are posted suspiciously, and to report these bots to an Administrator (or Moderator if Jagtai and I are not active) at once when spotted.

Thanks!

I've added another (much more fun) layer of protection against these spam bots. Hopefully this will keep them at bay.

As before, continue to let us know if more are spotted!
