    People have to stop this ****! I think AG will agree with me that anyone posting a virus gets a ban. They are horrible things to get rid of for some people!

    I was then about to PM you but obviously you've seen it.

    What did the link actually contain? I'm obviously not going to click on it after what people have said.

    I haven't clicked on it luckily enough, but it's not the first time it has happened on here(although the first one, the poster didn't know to be fair to him).

    I did click on it from my work PC. I work for an internet company so the AV picked it up straight away but the AV in this place is awesome. So no harm done but thats not the point really. It was a deliberate attempted to infect other users machines. No place on this forum for it IMO

    Agree entirely, getting rick-rolled is one thing, ****ing people's computers (especially considering a lot of us are students with fast-approaching deadlines) is beyond ****ish!

    If that's not an offense that carries a ban then god help this website. If he gets away with it then what message are we sending out to other people??

    Had a virus last week, wiped all photos and music and documents off. Thank God for backups!

    I did click on it and it was ****ing vile malware with clowns faces and gaping arseholes in it!!!

    Easy enough to fix with the simplest anti-virus software but that's not the point, I reported the offending posts as malware but it looks like everyone sussed before they clicked the link.

    Got no time for that, I understand if Tash feels he's a victim sometimes because certain users do go overboard with him imo BUT why post something like that where the likes of myself and many other more liberal users can get ****ed over for no real reason?

    What a ****ing clown.

    Luckily i didn't click on it. I have a 25,000 word thesis on computer that im working on. If anything good has come out of it, i have now saved it to various different hard-drives etc.

    Beyond a ****ing joke that is

    Pretty much this. There's a line between slightly OTT banter and being completely irresponsible

    Ne needs a ban. No question about it. You can't tolerate **** like that for one second.

    <yikes> Glad I missed all this. Although if I ended up with the virus, it probably would have been karma. Especially as I'm currently working on an essay!

    Did Tash link it, knowing it was a virus? Or was it an honest mistake?

    Because we should all forgive people who accidentally post viruses <whistle>

    He knew what he was doing, I fail to see how that could be mixed up with something that he posted on youtube.
