Due to the overwhelming spam comments that my profile is getting from people who unknowingly clicked on hacking links, I'm letting everyone know that if someone sends you a link that ends in "CLICK HERE", DO NOT CLICK IT!!!!

The text in such posts include (but are not limited to):


"Hey. check out this funny blog!! LOL CLICK HERE"

"hey i thought this IQ quiz was cool. i just took mine!! CLICK HERE"

"hey! check this out! I just saw who my secret VALENTINE WAS!! it really works.. see who your VALENTINE is just CLICK HERE"

"Hey. This person wrote something about you in their blog.. CLICK HERE"

"LOL everyone should see this  ... it's HILARIOUS just Click here"


All of the links in these types of messages take you to sites that hack your user name and password and uses your account to send copies of the original message you clicked on to everyone on your watch list and sometimes the people you are watching as well. Apparently you are unaware of your account being hacked until your watchers notify you about the link, or you get comment banned for spam comments. If you clicked on a link that looked like the above examples you should change your password ASAP.

That is all. Have a nice day!

Also theres a big one:

"ROFL, this may be relevant to your interests" with "this" being the link. It hacked me and two of my friends and the only reason I clicked it was because he was a good friend of mine.

It happens on MySpace already :( My brother is a MySpace fanatic and he had three of his profiles hacked and password changed because he clicked on fake site profile links. So he had to keep making new profiles.
