    Hey, has anyone else been gotcha'd by some dodgy links?

    I clicked on a return to forum link and got taken to a site of *questionable* content. Definitely NSFW stuff.

    Just wondering whether anything untowards going on with the forum servers?

    The user is placing HTML Website code inside his posts, which doesn't appear as text but creates links all over the page to the website of their choice, which is gayporn. For now, ALWAYS check the bottom left corner of your screen when you are about to click something, and it will show you what the web address of the link is sending you to.

    The best thing to do is look for a new user on the page, and then contact a moderator. To tell who is the culprit, request to find recent posts by whatever new user you think it is. In the search results you will likely see a bunch of HTML code as their post.

    Yeah, please disable html in posts. For now I'm using adblock to block all that stuff.

    He's not the only one. There seemed to be three links on the thread I cited that had strange looking QUOTE links, which I assumed were tainted.

    Not that I checked them. Repeatedly. Or anything.

    What are you looking at?

    How do we know which mods are online besides sifting through the members list?

    You can see which mods are online by visiting this list:
    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/showgroups.php?
    Note that mods have a variety of powers and jurisdictions so make sure the moderator you contact has moderation of that forum if it is a very pressing concern.
