Several baseball sites have been getting hammered with spam posts, that always lead back to the same online baseball store. The post is most always a first post from a new member who uses a normal sounding name as his user name, and usually goes something like "my son is looking for a glove/pants/helmet/etc., do you think this is any good?" and then the link to the same site.

Hopefully it's just some idiot from the site with nothing better to do than join all the baseball forums out there and post spam emails to direct traffic to his site, but at worst there could be spyware/malware/virus' involved by clicking on the link. If you're one of the people who clicked on one of those links from one of his posts today, probably wouldn't be a bad idea to run a quick scan and do a little cleanup with your chosen virus/spyware/malware program.

Just a head's up, and please don't click on any suspicious links from new members whose first post fits this description.


Thanks...

Thanks Moren025 for reporting another one of these posts.
Pretty friggin' stupid of this guy and his company, as I would never go over to a site (much less buy anything from one) that promoted themselves by spamming baseball forums.
