Hello everyone,

Unfortunately, sometimes here on the Coffee Forums, we have visitors who are trying to Spam the Forum or they are trying to get us to click on a link that leads us to someplace where we don't want to go.

There are ways to check a link in a post to be sure it's safe. The best bet is to make a habit on not clicking on links until you've stopped and given it some thought. If something looks strange, it probably is.

Here is an article with instructions on how to check a link to see if it's safe. The author writes articles on his website and on Facebook, and today this article appeared. We recently had some questions about a few links that appeared over the weekend. I wish I had this information before today.

Please be careful when clicking on links that you see in posts, especially when they are in a post from someone who just joined the Forum.

I've been complaining about the Off Topic section for years. It's the most difficult discussion area to monitor.

Do other forums have an "Off Topic" section?
