I just received the following mail on the forum.
Any comments? I guess, banning the user is of no use as he will show up under new name or?

----and i have tried to open the link page but my anti virus blocked his site and says as "Reported Attack Site!

This web site at 94.xxx.xx.xxx has been reported as an attack site and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

Attack sites try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

Some attack sites intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners."

...now my question is...is this guy spamming the board? or trying to spread the virus to all members of this forum? or trying to steal some thing from the member's computers?
if yes, then why the mods r admin r allowed this types of guys in this great forum?
regards-george

soory for my poor english!

Ive had the same type of message too. It reads,

Subject: Attention! Quote message
Your computer was noticed in email spam. It is quite possible that it is a part of botnet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botnet). Strongly recommend you to scan your computer for malware. You can do it online, for example, at:

Please, follow this. Otherwise I have to send abuse mail to your ISP with all the ensuing consequences.
Thank you, Joan Davis.

This person needs banning as I checked his profile and he,s still live.
