I wonder that too...Some people will click on their links...on sites like this which is used regularly and moderated regularly then they'll get nothing but on other sites then I'm sure lots of people will click the links especially if they put it on teen sites.

I tried it lol, I didn't click submit though. I've seen the buttons but had no idea what they do (I know it tells you if you hover over it but I've never looked :oops: )

We might have another one in the ranks...no suspicious posts yet however the username of a very new member sounds like it may be a spammer

Ok the super quick lightening reflexes of the mods have deleted at least one more spammer...

I have a question :)

It says the user is no longer available - fair enough, yet the spammer has obviously posted on some posts and when I click on those posts and see nothing new and then click off it - it keeps saying the post is still new and unread - when I have clearly read it (about 10 times in a row just to make sure)...:(

Glad I'm not the only one then :)

It's fixed itself now since someone else has added their post to it.

Which thread was that in? The last few I deleted hadn't made any posts.

I think it was in Crazy-Amy's thread about the Pill, in Physical.
