Default Members referring to websites

WARNING TO MEMBERS Just recently there has been a rash of mostly new members posting, giving a website address where you are invite to win something, just now it was a free laptop, & I deleted the address.
I know it is technically spam, but I don't take further action in these cases, as the chance of winning anything is very faint, it's just a stupid thing to do, in future members are not to do this, if they do, after this warning, action may well be taken, SPREAD THE WORD!

**Keep reporting this kind of posts!

Thanks, yes, I think that his was just a daft idea, probably thinking it was going to win someone some cash, but poor you , maybe your post here will make others think twice!

David posts IP's and e-mail addresses of spammers. We are just following his lead.
