    Oh heck, this is the normal spam that comes here so often. I thought this live streaming spam was something new.

    spam is any advertisement in the forums that has nothing to do with treasure hunting in any form.
    It's done by Unscrupulous Companies & Individualizes to get free advertising,
    and possibly give you a Virus in some cases..

    and is almost exclusively done by first time members.

    not much more I can say.

    Thanks Jeff, now I know what this type of span is. I thought it was the type of span that comes in a can, and bad tasting.

    No......

    Spam, in its simplest terms, means unsolicited advertising. That can mean anything from someone coming in trying to boost web traffic to their own (or another) site, all the way to something much more malicious. Nowdays, if someone so much as visits a bad web page without their PC (laptop, tablet, phone, etc) being properly protected, they can get a virus or worm. If not so bad, it may only be bothersome. Or, it could be something that works its way through your PC (or other) and throws any personal info out to the original programmer, or maybe to the entire world of hackers. This could include names, addresses, passwords (including bank), SSN's, tax info, photos, personal diary kept on your PC, etc. Don't think that just because you have Norton or McAfee that you're protected. Those ONLY protect you from the vast majority of hackers and hacker-wannabe's. The worst hackers out there can easily get by most any of the defenses available to us. Fortunately, these hackers see no fun in hacking PC's like ours, as there's nothing on them to compare with government, military, public works or other sites. ...UNLESS you happen to work at one of these sites. Then you could be the target of a major hacker.

    They don't. They're simply non-paying members....like me. The only dues I pay here are by providing my input and interaction to the forum, and doing what I can to protect it from people who have no good business here. ...If I ever get more reliable internet and without a data cap, then I will probably become a paid member. But that remains to be seen.

    I guess if your open yourself to open anything that comes along for links posted and so on, your going to get hit
    to this day, cant understand why members click on links
    Just my opinion
    Because i refuse to open links, it keeps my computer safe
    IMO

    They prey on the fact that there are lots of sports fanatics out there who would LOVE to see live streaming of two favorite teams for free. The gullible folks don't even stop to question whether there really IS such a game happening live at that moment! And still others who will click on the link(s) simply because they are curious.

    Now, here's the problem - you may click on a link and see a game (live or not), or you may get just an empty web page. In any case, as far as you can tell, nothing bad has happened. However, without you even being aware, you may have accepted a worm or virus into your system. It's much like VD (from what I've learned - no personal experience here!!) in the sense that you don't know until afterwards that something wicked this way grows!!

    I reported a few yesterday. There should be a "spamelimalator" ( say that 3 times fast...) award. So mods... Who's nailed the most?
    Like you guys need more stuff to do, then count "reports"
