    Hi all,

    I noticed a few folks responding to threads posted by spambots...

    The thread sounds very legitimate but there is ALWAYS a link/url within the post and that is a dead giveaway. Just watch for these.

    The desire to help and respond quickly is understandable and commendable...

    Please resist the urge to click the link. Just ignore the post and it will soon be deleted.

    Please also don't respond to these if possible as that allows a potential bad link to hang around longer.

    I hate that I even have to post such a warning thread in the first place....

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    You should always report it. I just want you folks to recognize it and not click the link nor waste your time responding...

    Trust me, it will soon be found and deleted....

    But, is always better to report it as that provides notification to the mods and admin...
