 ;D OK just trying to help. I have been using smf for several years and thought I would throw it out there. I forgot 2.02 is still basically in beta as Iv'e been running it for quite a while. Spam actually forced me to upgrade. I was at my wits end with it and did the upgrade and couldn't have been happier with the results.

 That and the 'English as a second language' grammar.  I hope no one clicked that link, they probably have a virus now.  Sheesh.

I did a search on some of the text in their post.  The search DID turn up the website with no warnings.

It looks to be a startup venture looking for advertisement, and like you say, the "English as a second language" part doesn't help much. There is information about several faires.  If it is a trap, it's an elaborate one. I would recommend caution and a good anti-virus suite.

I'm not sure what system you use for anti-spam.  My username + e-mail got caught in the system.  Special thanks to DeadBishop for getting that worked out.

For my SMF(v2.02) I link to www.stopforumspam.com/  The site has had 0 issues with actual user registration / spam detection in over a year.   Link to Mod HERE

Also, if you don't already use it, you should look at Tiny Portal  ;)

Actually, it appeared to be confined the Renaissance Weddings forum. What an interesting combination. (NOT!)
