    Some of you may have noticed strange posts in random forums, saying nothing but "maybe..." or "I think so....". These are posts by spambots (automatic spamming software) who are not just registering but recently started posting too. Don't bother to reply or comment to them. I will remove these 'members' and their postings as soon as possible. I do hope we can find a way to prevent this kind of infiltration as it is getting more and more of a problem.

    Well if you can ! You have my sympathy. Be careful out there :wink:

    But I think a software sort of solution to just keep 'em out would help better, and save you a trip to the slums of Moscow, Petersburg, or wherever these russian mafiosi lurk....

    I am beginning to believe that it is a software company conspiracy. Just think about it! The companies who write software and software protection hire programmers to write viruses to send out into the world. Then once a innocent computer user see that his or her computer is infected; the software protection company pushes their virus protection program to the consumer.

    It's a vicious, and corrupt circle. Just like car dealers in the US. (Buy the car from their dealership and once it starts to go bad..say after 10,000 miles, they'll give you such a load of bullsh** that the unlearned person in the realm of mechanics will buy it and be sucked into pointless repairs)

    It's just too awful to contemplate, but yeah, I have been thinking something similar too.
    Probably not in this case though, as there does not seem to be a protection against it. And there is no actual harm done, it's just annoying. Just removed another one today, they keep coming in.
