    Microsoft will release, on 9 July, a number of seven security patches that are rated as ‘critical’. This could be the last time that we see an upgrade for Windows XP as on 8 April, 2014, Microsoft will officially kill support for the ancient OS.

    I will definitely wait before installing this to hear if what or any problems are associated with it.

    If this was a reported post it is gone. Emailing a copy will do no good. If you want to send me a copy go ahead.

    Joe, I couldn't report it because it didn't appear on the forum.
    I got a reply notification and the spam was in the reply....

    I have no idea how to forward you the email unless you PM me a email address to send it to.

    I would guess there is nothing strange about it - a spammer replied to you, you got a notification that included a copy of the spammer's reply, someone deleted the spam in between and once you arrived here, the reply was gone.

    You are not being spammed. The Lounge was and the notification system really doesn't know whether a reply is spam or not - it's just another reply - so it just notified you of it, as it notifies of other replies.

    You're lucky if you've only been noticing it a lot lately. Happens just about every night; while we sleep, the Korean('s) has the spamalot machines turned up to 11.

    I do not get these notifications because I do not subscribe to ANY threads. I just go through and check the threads with new posts. If it's a thread I have been participating in I will check the thread again. If you subscribe to a thread you will get a notification of ALL posts in that thread, including the spam. When this spam is reported we quickly delete the post and ban the spammer. You did not see the related post because it had already been deleted before you arrived.

    Unfortunately we have no way of withdrawing the already sent notifications once the deletion has occurred.

    Bany, for you and anyone else receiving these spam notifications, we are sorry, but in this case there is little we can do.
