If someone were to have clicked on that link, what would have happened? Would its effects been immediate? Is there something I need to do to my computer now? Thanks.

I'd run a virus check, and probably a spyware one too, for a start.

I don't actually know what it is, just that it's bad.

I clicked a similar, if not identical, thing a while ago, and had no problems.

-Fender Rumble 100

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your sig if you are one of the 8% who stayed with real music.

Well, thanks Benny. Maybe I was bored. I did manage to get out of it relatively quickly though. But thanks for the advice, Frenchy.

ED! You were the one that warned everyone! I just clicked OK on the last window to pop up and it took me back to the Pit.

Well, I'm clean, so either I got out quickly enough, or it didn't do anything to begin with. Thanks for the help Frenchy.

My question is : why is there so much accounts that are created (and banned really quickly) just to make a thread with a link to a virus ???

Can't there be some kind of stick warning people about this guy until he goes away?


EDIT: That site that some idiot(s) have been posting lately that crashes your web browser after half a minute. it's so annoying. he (they) keep(s) on creating new accounts just to put that site (it's under a different name now, too) up.

Well the first wave of threads made by the person/bot said wait for 17 seconds or something, so I assume that it takes roughly that long for it to get to your computer.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Eh Quebecker.. I'd hate to break it to you, but welcome to the world we live in. Unfortunately, cigarettes and baguettes just aren't enough to keep the world outside of Quebec happy.


Their unhappiness leads them to resort to one ( or both ) of the following malicious actions:

1) Car bombings

2) Spam on the intarweb

ah, wahappen. what would you say to a warning sticky? nobody really knows what that link exactly does, and it could be dangerous. Or a PM to all users warning them about it.

Andy... are there any soft deleted threads with the link that I could have a look at?

Was it the one just posted in SF?
