In the games forum, this thread has a post that copied another person's two-year old post nearly verbatim -- except for slipping in a sketchy link.

Forum » Computer Games » Do you already play mods Fallout 4? (https://www.radiorivendell.com/forum/8/4368/) q.v. post by VernaShieldsb@gmail.com

Those orcsies are getting ever so much more clever...

"What if everything you see is more than what you see — the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it is really a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." — Shigeru Miyamoto

And four more:

Forum » New member introductions » Hotmail Telephone Number

Forum » New member introductions » Facebook Telephone Number

Forum » New member introductions » Gmail Contact Number

Forum » New member introductions » Hotmail Telephone Number

NONE of these are even legit. They have the classic format of "phishing scams" where some entity is impersonating someone/something legitimate in order to collect your personal information for nefarious purposes. Avoid.

Good eye on that one! They are getting clever like the orcs in JourneyQuest...

I have a whip of banning (+3magic) and I 'm not afraid to use it!

Sorry for my absence! I've been swamped more terribly than usual with work and family. Juggling two jobs, two kids and a house has been a little too much for me. But hopefully things are shaping up for the better now. Hopefully!

I've cleaned away most of the forum crap. Is there anything left?

The Uruk-Spam are multiplying in great numbers as of late. I have no idea why they thing these forums will in any way be fruitful for phishing, especially considering the posts are about as well disguised as Frodo imitating a Balrog.

Not sure what can be done about it, but I see many fake profiles being created just to spam the forums. Someone give Galadriel the Ring so she can scare them off!
