All the spam posts lately have me wondering. They look perfectly harmful, but there must be a reason for them to post.

What do they hope to gain?
If you open one - do they then have access to your computer/files????

I think if they have a link to something, DON'T open the link. (I may be wrong)

It's like playing Russian Roulette. Do you really want to take that chance?

Many spammers hope people are gullible. More than likely the football links have a ton of viruses to attach to your computer.

So can they get your info if you just open the post and don't click on the link?

Clicking on the thread to open it is not a problem - but clicking on the blue LINK is where a problem could happen.

Is the one titled Argentine Ants one of the ones your talking about? It makes no sense to me there is nothing to link to and open. I also wonder what they gain other than wasting their time .
