    I don't know if this forum uses the same system but many types have recently been bombarded by bots. I got this message on 2 different forums I frequent.

    Just wanted to let everyone know cause everyone so far that's clicked has had virus infections Ying-Yang cause they had to click it out of curiosity. So if you get a PM with one of the following topics.

    "Please Help"
    "This is cool"
    "Look at this topic"

    Or anything else that is just downright suspect along with a goofy username DO NOT CLICK. The Vista forum was recently attacked by the same spammers when 1000 bots made accounts and sent messages. The admins over there also suggested that you change your password in-case you clicked it.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Yep that seo guy has been on here a few times, kind of pointless as he’s just got banned every time.
