    Hi guys. Recently I saw some new users post seemingly normal messages with weird links with obscure domains at the bottom of the post. Is this a mistake or is something bad going on here?

    Yeah, that looks really suspicious. They might be bot accounts judging by the way some of the replies are written.

    I’ve noticed that too, especially in the Introduce yourself forum

    Yeah their writing style is odd. Maybe English isn't their first language but that doesn't explain the links.

    Oh hey I just checked and most of the posts were old. I don't know why someone posted to an old introduction thread with a seemingly normal post but the weird link.
