The past few days, as I'm sure most of you have seen (especially with a few screenies posted in the screenshot section), we have been hit with a bunch of spam accounts.

We are working at getting them weeded out so they won't come back. Until then, we ask that you do NOT click any links they may have entered into their profile AT ALL.

Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

Thanks!

Any links that they may have in their profiles can contain malicious files...treat it the same way as a suspicious email, don't click on any links.

Bots are sent to forums to basically spam them with inappropriate things, usually porn - but with those sites comes harmful software to your computer, spyware, viruses - there's no telling.
No clicking!

Please don't reopen old topics.

The problem has long since been solved.
