Hi Dan - I have been reporting any spamming type posts I see.  Is this helpful or just a nuisance from your point of view?

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

I'm on here every morning at 5.30am if you want an early morning cleaner in. The dog gets a chew and the Mrs a cup of tea in bed an hour later. :love:

Talking of spam, its time to get the brush and brush pan out again.

On the forum I help to run, we manage to avoid most of the spammers, by new members accounts having to be activated by the moderating team.

Many would be spammers deactivate their own accounts as soon as they realize that they can't get straight on to the forum to do their dirty work.

Kelly, opening the message should not in itself create problems - you must have clicked on one of the links in the post.  Never click on links in posts, messages or emails unless you are 100% sure who sent it - and be careful of that too as email accounts can be hacked into.
