Hi, it seems that the website likes to put "New" in red text for every thread that I haven't read, even though the thread really isn't new (the last reply has not happened since I last visited). Is there a reason for this? To me it seems like a distraction....
Orr, when you're doing the next round of spam deletions, could you include ashantycapre's various posts in these? Not only does the visible text appear to have originated from some sort of automatic fake forum posting generator, but if you highlight the text a spam link using white text becomes visible (as if designed to be found via a Google search, or to increase the pagerank for the site it links to, but concealed from forum moderators)
("ashantycapre" has been pulling this stuntt on unity3d.com as well.)
The post above by "orangewine6" is another example of this.
I've had a look, but can't find any more posts with hidden spam links.
That said, sherardson's post above looks like it was made by a spambot, mainly because it seems so utterly out of context compared to the rest of the posts in this thread. I think the idea there might have been to make an innocent post and then edit it later on to add a spam link - don't know why this hasn't happened.
So... could you take a look at it and decide if it should be deleted?

My name is Eduardo I am from Germany, working as a programmer and software developer, the ciptología has always been my interest and is fundamental to my work to protect and secure data from my clients.
Great forum and I hope to see more topics and actual relevant discussions. I have a hardware background and also academic security & criminal justice/forensics so this topic of cryptology has always been a past time interest of sorts.
