Are the bots spamming the forum putting my computer at risk? Or just annoying. I dont read the threads but gotta wonder.

Pretty much just annoying unless you click on a link they provide.

Like Murph said, no, unless you click on them.
Amie or I delete them when we see them.
I've had no trouble on my computer.

Alan

I clicked on one once. The spastic tic I got from it hasn't stopped yet.

Take your max dosage of Valium, clonodine and baclophen four times a day. That's what reduces my spasms.
