Hello everyone,
As I offer advice pretty consistently on this site I would like to ensure everyone's computer safety. This site/forum is meant only for help and advising people on the subject of the MEB/PEB process, hence the name of the site/forum!

On these open types of forums, evil people create "bots" to get a person to unwittingly click on a link that will download viruses, trojans and worms. I would not advise clicking on any link from someone that is not titled as "Regular Member" unless you know it is a direct link to something that directly deals with opening a PDF or some other trusted format.

I compiled a list of thread names that are from these bots:
I am happy I signed up
I am the new girl
I am the new guy
I am the new one
Just wanted to say Hello.
Just wanted to say Hi.
Im glad I finally registered
Im happy I finally registered
Its no secret

Or anything that has to do with advertising something, naming a famous person, religion, or selling a product.

Anything with foreign language in the posting, a post with random wording/sentences and/or make any sense, and references to porn are also key things to look for.

To help with stopping this please report the thread and put a reply on that posting that they were reported, the Moderators and the Site Creator will delete these bot postings.

This is exactly what all my posts are like without autocorrect and spending half an hour to an hour reading and re-reading what I write.

So, anyone that sees these things in a post by me, just understand I was probably having a bad day and was short on time... No need to report me.
