This was a reply meant for Fred and Anthony on a thread that included possible spam links.

In the time it took to write it and hit the reply button, Secunia had rightly removed it, and my reply was lost in the ether.

Here it is anyway, for the heck of it.

For some strange reason, I have found, that the Edit facility is NOT available to the initiator on the very first posting of a thread.

No problems with subsequent postings.

Probably a while since you`ve both had cause start one; - or is this just peculiar to me.

I have had cause to edit my first posting, in the past but wasn`t able to.

Although not mind-blowingingly important, it might be something that Secunia may want to look at.

Hi,

I've confirmed your report and will report this to our developers.

As for the other thread, we removed it because his post history indicated he was only interested in upping his page rank, and not in actually contributing to the forum. Your estimate that he was a spammer was correct.

Thanks for the reply Emil.

I realised that the other thread was not long for this world, but as this was only a minor point and secondary to the thread, intended only to clarify the position to the other 2 respondents, I thought I`d try to piggy-back on it.

Hi TiMow ,

Tanks for the info , most interesting ; I think the thread was blasted before I saw Fred's reply to mine , did he have anything interesting to add ??

There is still the second thread by the same guy , but it's quiet for the moment and getting hidden away by the day :))

Anthony

PS : replies do get blasted , take Fred's advice and blue highlight ,right click copy before you try to post - especially long posts .

I think Fred`s was similar to yours, about editing out the spam links, which is what instigated my reply.

I`ve learnt the hard way - my internet connection is still prone to dropping out - normally just as I hit reply.

Its just happened again on the barbareska thread - fortunately, that`s exactly what I do and was able to paste and re-reply (??).
