Default Link Spammers - Do Not Click On The Links

Dear Members,

We have lately had a problem with link spammers signing up only to post a bunch of links. We are trying to prevent this from happening, but it may take a while before we find a solution. In the mean time we will remove these posts as soon as possible, but they may be on the forum for a while before we have a chance to remove them.

If you see these posts, please do not click on the links in the posts. Doing so could possibly damage your computer. In general you should always be a bit cautious when clicking on links online, especially advertisements, as some may lead to malicious sites. Also, be extra careful when downloading files or opening files in your browser. Preferably only download files from government sites or the official sites of well-known companies.

You are welcome to report spammers to the TTL team. If you do so, it is not necessary to report more than one post, as we will find the rest.

Thank you,
Ella

We are now able to prevent some of the spammers from posting links. However, they might still create new accounts and post on the forum. If you see a post that makes no sense it could be a spammer. Some of them only sign up to post random sentences. If you see this, or other posts that sounds like spam, please report it to us and we will have a look at it.

It would be great if no spammers signed up here, I agree with you there midnightphoenix.
