Beware abandoned links!

Post by brothers » Fri Nov 17, 2017 6:14 pm

I recently took a look at a very old archive SMF post regarding some shaving soap. There was a link posted, and it turned out that it was no longer active, and actually linked (blind) to a malware site that was fortunately blocked by my security software. This is just a reminder to all of us to avoid clicking on links that are very old.

If you let me know which post I can edit out the link.
