cool.gif I have noticed at least two posts by very new members that appear to be links to some sort of commercial sites. One was in the threads about bargains, one was in the thread about kopi/kapi. The one in the bargain thread was about mobile phones unsure.gif and the one in the kopi/kapi thread asked people to send private messages. rolleyes.gif

ISO, dz and Speculatrix would you have a look and see if I'm just being paranoid? smile.gif It would be a shame if we had to go back to 'vetting' new members but it might be needed if this is really the start of spamming the forum. sad.gif

Cheers

A day or two ago, I reported two identical posts advertisng new mobile phones I think.
They were both authored by the same member, who had joined the same day and had a total of 2 posts.
I think one was in the For Sale/Wanted thread, and the other was in one of the SL-5500 threads.

Regards,
Doug

Well if you did the deleting in the pinned thread about kdepimpi in the software thread then my post has gone also! laugh.gif I replied to uth's post about being able to run the kdepimpi stuff on modern desktop distros and referred to alijames's comment about the compiling issue. The next post after mine was one of these cheesy spammers quoting my post and pretending to be answering it! rolleyes.gif

Not to fuss: my deathless prose is worth sacrificing to kill a spammer... biggrin.gif Especially with my breathless lack of commas!
