    It just looks like someone posted a spam message in reply to a thread you are subscribed to, and it's been deleted since then.

    JACKASTOR:

    I agree looks like spam. You should either remove the links or delete the message. No use helping out the spammer by posting it somewhere where the mods don't know to delete it.

    Thanks,

    Nest time, click the little ! in a triangle to report the post so the mods can delete the post.

    Spammers are attacking all forums everywhere, so reporting the posts help keep the forums clean. I just wish I didn't have to wait 60 seconds per report - spammers usually post tons of messages in a big lump...

    FYI, you only need to report one post from each spammer as the system kills them all in one swoop.
