There have been quite a few spam bots coming on the forums and posting recently. It is quite annoying. If you see any new members that have only a few posts and they are posting about some link or other, don't click the link. I will have to upgrade the forums soon so that they won't be able to post anymore. Until then, don't click links unless you are sure of what they are.

These things are crazy. Whats strange is its somtimes hard to tell when they are spam bots :S

They often post quite sensible posts asking about things such as how the stock market works or somthing random...

Sometimes they don't even bother having a link, which is even wierder. :ermm:

Don't post here ever again.

Maybe to throw off suspicion on later posts?

Hmm good theory, but as of yet i have yet to see one that gets away with it for very long. Its just curious that they dont seem to even bother posting links, perhaps its a google bomb tactice or somthing similar.

Don't post here ever again.
