Hey guys Im just trying to look out for all...I received a very strange PM today by what seems to be a new member?(newbie) Jessie 2 ?Anyone else get this? Under his name it says ~banned~ but hes online I guess? this was his message. It had link with it too..I did not post that due to any possible virus or something...not sure if thats something thats filtered here or not. Just wanted to give a heads up...somethings seems not right about this. This was also sent as a reply..I never sent this dude a PM before...How or why would I if he joined what looks to be dated yesterday.

Hi,
I'm new here, how's it going?

"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein

It appears that the name was registered yesterday and banned today by the administration. The thought is that the name may have been a “spambot”, in any event reporting this kind of thing was a good idea, thanks for the heads up………

Snipa ...I would still run a check on your PC... if you did get a virus or some type of spybot you may not even know it (thats what these [email protected]#k's want)but it could track where you go or even steal passwords and/or inportant info..i.e. creditcard #'s. Those scam guys dont want you to know something got inside!! they don't setup that stuff cause it's fun!!! Also, I'm not trying to make you scared..just looking out for the fellow member of this great site!!

Once you have run a scan on your pc with your virus killer, I would also go to tread micro on the web and do a free one with them also, Cant help to check with a diff one also.
