We got another one, this time it's from JanieDoe. Here's the note, they sent, link removed. (BET it is a porn site, or that it gives internet STDs/malware/viruses!)

Check out *link removed* . I know you'll "Like" it!


It has apparently sent this to more than one person, as the angry comments on its page show. They have not commented anywhere, so I cannot report them. Help?! Please, please let give us the ability to report spam, if not block users? =(

I don't know where to report this

I got a Google chrome malware warning for this page


This is not the right pic - just to show what I got

The message says
Warning: Something's Not Right Here!

That page used to work... ? Maybe there's an image embedded from elsewhere?
Maybe remove whatever it is that causes the problem?

Can someone please look into this?
Thank you!

Tiandu

What page?! Huh? O_O

Edit: Oh wait, there's a link up there! *blush* I see... I missed it at first.

Tiandu

Reported the post to draw attention to it quickly! O_O

There was an image source from that website on the page. I have removed the image and Chrome is now happy with it :-)

Thank you Chris! =)

That's an other good reason to avoid hot linking!

I notified the concerned person as the same image was in the palette description - it's now been totally removed. =)
Just for future reference - Chris left a notice saying
[IMAGE REMOVED BY PureForm - See here]

So report the comments? That bot is very busy, and selecting only the "empty" profiles looks like. They got a comment on their profile too, from another bot looks like.

Just received this email from "trustee11"
LOL just noticed several of you posted this same SCAM note.
God bless you and thanks,
how are you? Happy to meet you. I got your contact via this site, I seriously have interest to invest on a profitable business in your country, the money I want to invest was acquired from my church member, and then I was his financial adviser. The amount to invest is ($14.5 million US dollars) presently, but I’m the present Catholic Church leader in my parish, if you will like to assist me as a partner, you must have the fear of God? kindly indicate your interest, and all other details relating to the funds will be revealed to you as we progress on. Confidentiality contact my direct e-mail address (@yahoo.com or @gmail.com) also indicate your direct telephone number, when replying this mail, God will guide us and with good health Amen,
God bless you and your family,
Rev, Chris
