MrFid – Most of the spam new members are just noise, but every now and again they will hijack and divert forum posts, blog posts, profile pages etc to redirect them to a potentially harmful site. This is what happened to me a couple of days ago. If I or anyone else tried to access my profile page (e.g. to add me as a buddy) it redirected them to an external site. In my case, McAfee blocked it and protected my computer from harm. Others, have not been that lucky. Thankfully, this has now been fixed, at least it was last time I tried. :o)
