I've just noticed there have been a few posts popping up that seem to be copied and pasted from someone elses post under a different name, but the same IP address.

Also multiple introduction posts from the same people.

Not sure if its just an error on the poster behalf or some sort of silly prank.

Hi nikki - you are spot on. I checked out the posts from the same IP address and they have hidden URLs embedded in them. I highlighted the hidden code in the Intro thread so you can see what the spammer is doing (I just put code tags around the section so they show up on the screen) and deleted all the other posts that had hidden URLs. So annoying that people waste time and effort responding to someone who's just promoting and porn or whatever :twisted:

Let's delete the intro thread later once people have had a chance to check out what the spammers are up to these days.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
