Heads Up, PM Spam
If you get a PM or e-mail with something like this in it:
Don't click on the link......................
"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein
EDIT: It seems that there has been a spate of random forum spamming. If you follow the links they are to sites that will attempt to infect your machine with a trojan or bot.
The method seems to be that a human creates an account then a bot is used to spam forum members.
If anyone has opened a PM from einstein2 I would suggest that you log out, clear your cookies then log in and change your password. A scan for malware might also be in order.

If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
