Be Careful Everyone.

For 3 nights in a row I have come across what looks to be dodgy links to dodgy products in the g2g forum. I  red flag them when I come across them and thankfully they have been removed very, very quickly.

They usually appear about 8.30 pm Australian EST and tonight another turned up right on schedule.

Stay Safe. ...Cheers Sharon.

I usually find these in the middle of the night (US time) but just flagged one a second ago. I am happy to say that they seem to always get flagged and removed within 5 minutes of posting, but still annoying that spammers are using this forum!

Thanks Eyes

It is great to know you are on to them up there.

Cheers ....Sharon.

Hi Sharon, the pesky so-and-so’s make regular appearances. It’s nice to see you have joined the ‘flaggers’ yes

Sometimes they are double flagged so quickly nobody see them!

Thanks Marion.

I feel heaps better now I know others are on to them to.

Have a lovely day.

A flag quickly brings attention to questionable entries.  I have found male dysfunction pills to be a favorite ad around 7 to 8
a.m. New York. USA and happily add the second flag.

Australian time - ok, Australia has 6 different time zones IIRC. But it's true, they usually appear in the late morning CET. When I see them I flag them instantly.

Sorry Jelena.

Australian Eastern Standard Time. I am in Queensland.

Hope you dont have to flag any today.smiley
