    Default to whom it may concern....

    There are things which the media doesn't want you to know
    Here's a good example of what you miss
    This concerns you all
    Watch and judge yourself

    Default Risky Spam!

    Unknown links can contain nasty viruses and other bad things!

    Why would you post those links here, when they have nothing to do with this forum's subject? If we want them, we will find them ourselves, and it has nothing to do with the media hiding them.

    It looks to me like an attempt to propagate some malware by a social-engineering ploy. We tend to trust each other on this and similar forums, so we'd be more likely to click on an unknown URL than we might be if it showed up in an e-mail from an unknown source.

    These are an unfortunate and VERY common ploy. Someone codes a bot to go out and post links to a site. This is likely JUST the beginning. The tech sites I am a member of (some of which are run by MS) are plagued by these jugheads. We get postings for all sorts of crap. I would watch responding to them. Frequently they will embed something in the link to verify that someone clicked the link specifically posted on this board which tells them posting here is a good idea. This is basically the internet variant of a door to door salesman.
    Depending on how they do these, they cold be tough to stop as well. There are a few tricks to make it much more difficult. These people are the bane of the internet world. Just ignore them and hope that a horrid virus sweeps through their entire network and obliterates every piece of computing equipment they have.

    Default why not remove...

    Hey mods, why not remove this thread and these links, whatever they are. They are either spam or viruses or worse and have no business here.

    Some of your users will click on them out of habit or curiosity. Why not spare them by removing the links?
