SPAM button also can help protect newbies. Basically when you spot an unwelcome post, indicate thread name, page number, date and time stamp, and request SPAM hit.
Scammers try different tactics. Some upload trojans with JPEGs, these are hard to detect, we will leave it for experts like Klaus to report them to the Admin.
They try inserting URLs. These need to be handled with care, and should not be opened by clicking, instead, here is what we do, as in this example.
Check this page http://www.delphifa..#comments
First of all, Droog from Russian Federation is our friend, scroll down to the first SPAM like message.
The so-called France starts with a suspicious URL, and search the address www.fuel.tv* on the top left of this page (I will discuss the * in a different article)
In this case only one hit, and request a SPAM hit on (all such) hits.
There are more articles by the same guy, forging IP in several countries.
While searching, start after the double //, stop at the double .., then add a final *, and search at the top left. The next search will be for www.jacksonv* etc.
By getting rid of suspicious URLs, etc., we save newbies from accidentally clicking on them, and messing up their computers.
