Is the pcadvisor forum under attack?

Just logged in and about 80% of the threads have porn links in them whats going on?

Multiple names, porn links and someone posing as other forum members,

Surely this cant be done by just one person?

Seem to start at around dinner time.

Wee Eddie says the silly season is over but it appears to have only just begun :0(

It started early this morning as i was logged on then and noticed a few dodgy posts then.

Hopefully FE will get on top of it.

Yes plonkers abound, is me.

My av kicked in to say the links are infected

someone I banned, who is so angry at being excluded he's taking revenge by registering under various usernames and posting these sick links.

Unfortunately for him we know a great deal more than he realises, and he may be in for a rather nasty shock in around 24 hours time.

In the meantime let's try to settle back to normality - we're sorting out the debris, and all will be well. I'm sorry this has happened - some people do take a forum ban very badly, and occasionally some of them reveal their true nature in this way - it tends to confirm to me that I was right to dispense with them in the first place.

No need to be sorry FE as its the rather sick individuals fault.

Im sure most of the forum members know not to click on the links now.

I only have pity for this guy who thinks its clever to post pornogrphic websites up,
What a miserable life he must lead.

After reading some threads today I'm glad I'm not a forum moderator. I'd loose it completely I think with some of the morons who have posted links to porn knowing full well that this site is family based.

Take my hat off to you FE, not a job I'd cope with!

As I said in a message to the FE earlier, this is a part of his job here that I really don't envy.

FE - it's reassuring to know that you're around now.

  Djohn 23:58 01 Sep 2006

Sad to see these type of things, as if you don't have enough work running the forum FE. Good luck in tracking the culprit down.

We're tidying the house now.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
