Hello Everyone!
I'm here to inform you that if you're getting PM of any Spambot like this:

Quote by oablcbHi, go to our website <insert weird site link>


Please do not click on the link and inform any active staff member, or simply to me. (Since we don't have PM report feature)
Recently someone created 100+ accounts within an hour or so. And IP ban is not in our (i.e. moderators') hands. So please feel free to inform us so we'll manually punish them!


If you have any questions feel free to ask here or PM me.

Sincerely,
MT staff.

Anyway, what does mad mean exactly? Aren't we all a little mad?
Don't we have to be somewhat mad just to go on living, to go on hoping?

So did anyone click it? There must have been at least one person who must have clicked it right?
Where art thou o wayfarer who has been to the mysterious website and has returned, pray retell to us what ye saw?

Why die only once when you can die a little everyday

It's my ototo-chan over there. <3 Haha.

Fortunately, I had some sort of immunity over it since I didn't receive any. Take care always guys and send my salutes to all the MT staffs. <3

" A mind full of bitter memories , a past drenched in sadness and watered with my tears,
A heart nurtured by the littlest spark of hope, a present fed by the wildest dreams,
A body scarred by the savage adversities, a future that holds the greatest uncertainties,
These are the deepest parts of my blue soul, armored and shielded by an indestructible fortress. " Signature

Just one question. What will happen if I come across these spambots and decide to click on them, what happen then?

it could be a scam, possibly a link that can steal your info aka phish you, your account and it could possibly be a Trojan to infect your system itself. here are some helpful links to explain further:

I clicked on the link, then I immediately closed it, seemed harmless but neverthless couldn't be sure. Nothing happened after that so I guess I'm safe.
Annoying AF!

Thank you so much for looking into this.

Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information (e.g. usernames, passwords and credit card details) or steal money by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication such as email, pop-up message, phone call or text message. Cybercriminals often use social engineering techniques to trick the recipient into handing over their personal information, transfer money or even download malicious software onto their device. Although some phishing scams can be poorly designed and are clearly fake, more determined criminals employ various methods to make them appear as
genuine.

Phishing attacks typically rely on social networking techniques applied to email or other electronic communication methods, including direct messages sent over social networks, SMS text messages and other instant messaging modes.

Phishers may use social engineering and other public sources of information, including social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, to gather background information about the victim's personal and work history, his interests, and his activities.
