FYI - Spam in the forums

There have been some spam postings lately. 

They initially appear to be an article of some type and then there's a single link that you would follow to get more details. 

 

The links go to different sites, but each of these sites appears machine cobbled together and likely is auto-generated. I'm not sure what they're trying to collect, but I wouldn't click on any links that are only here...

 

Most appear to be by new users with a single post.

Thanks for letting us know, @Reeza. We're checking into it. I do know the spam filter is catching some of these posts, but not all of them apparently.

I have flagged several...I just worry about someone clicking the link and thinking its a legitimate SAS training site from a company when it's really just malware or something else.
