Default Strange and/or questionable posts

I got a PM about posts appearing on the board. Someone was concerned they were spam. As you know, there are guidelines about what can and cannot be posted on the board. If you have concerns about any post you can report it to the moderators. A notice goes to Sam, Nancy and I as well as Huston. One of us will take a look at it and take any appropriate action.

In any case, DO NOT click on any links if you have any concerns! Please don't take a chance, it's not worth it.

If something shows up on your own profile, you can report that as well.

Will add that I generally check the IP address for some of these and take a look at the profile they set up on PW to get registered -- they are almost always located in India or Asia, but unless they are obvious spam, or contain links that are not allowed they might not be removed...on the off chance that it is a legitimate party...but they are being watched! Most often there is a post or two and they disappear...but as Penny said, be cautious, and PM us asap if you get something in your visitor's messages or PM's that doesn't seem right.
