I find it necessary to, once again, warn members not to click a link is a post made by an unfamiliar or suspicious person. Once again, a post was made with text within the post actually being a link to elsewhere, not a visible link.

Mos of the links in posts are legitimate, but if you are suspicious, not familiar with the member, etc, wait until you are sure the link is legitimate. I am pretty good at finding them, and some are pointed out to me via PM before I log in, but, there could be a straggler. 

Suggestion:

You cannot always see the links because they are buried in the text, so, my suggestion is to keep your mouse pointer or finger off the text area of the post to eliminate the possibility of accidentally clicking or touching a word that is part of the link.

I log in many times during the day and at night to check for spammers, and I am checking in as a guest and logging in if needed. I am not always seen, but I am checking as a guest a lot.

Feel free to PM or email me with any spam or suspicious post reports. Include the USERNAME and the TOPIC TITLE and LOCATION of the post, include the link to that topic, if you can. If there are many posts in the topic, try to provide the post number.

A screenshot attached to the PM would be great.
