    Be carefull of links in threads.

    There are a couple of new threads which I think need checking by admin before people clink on the links in the posts.

    morning wobble, the trouble with any forum is that there are all ways going to be spammers if we like it or not.

    many forums are now been set up so if any new member joins they are unable to post links until they have been a member for a while that also goes for the health forum me and some others run.

    with any site it is important that the moderators keep an eye on things and if they suspect something is wrong then they can delete posts or even get rid of the offending member.

    as i all ways say if you are not sure of something then don't click on it.

    Clearly this site does not operate this system of restricting links by new posters.
    I did report the posts and I see they have been removed. Maybe the admin will introduce here the ideas you have implemented on your own site.

    I generally only look at the Motoring section and try and keep on top of the spam there by reporting the posts to admin.

    I also warn users not to click on the links.
