    Interesting about your names http://mimosa.org.ua/jdurden44;JohnM...rl;bonjovipopo
    Clicking on the link (I know...) I was offered the fantastic opportunity to download or run a very unsafe looking EXE. "bestnicknames.exe"

    Not sure if this is the right way to go about reporting this. I not, my apologies.

    If you encounter problem posts or PMs please just report the pm. That means clicking on the exclamation !/warning side on the post. It makes it easier for mods to handle.

    Thanks

    LOL... done. I had searched the whole page looking for something that would allow me to report the post. How I missed the exclamation mark I don't know.

    Sometimes we miss things or it takes awhile to get to them. If it's still a problem, pm one of the admins/moderators.
