Warning about Suspicious Registrations

Postby Sahearniitth on Wed Jan 12, 2011 2:46 pm

There have been a few suspicious registrations over the last few days. If these continue I will recheck the security settings and try to add a new layer of defense against spam.

In the meantime be careful opening messages posted in the general section.

That FionaGlen person who just registered inserted a website link in her member profile to some .org site. Sah, can you erase the link? My admin rights don't extend to deleting data from profiles (or if it does, I don't know how to do it). Meanwhile, obviously nobody should click that link.

I googled it and it does come up as a legit site, but it's also a home built site by the looks of it. I love noscript.
