I don't have anything posted in the cybercrime forum I wouldn't want public. We know spammers have managed to register here at times, even if they didn't get far enough to post, so people shouldn't think of the members-only forums as places they can post personal information. I would like a lot more stuff in all the forums here available to people doing google searches looking for help.

People who would like their posts moved to other forums can let us know.

I will check, but I don't think I mind what is there to be in the open area, readable by guests.

Okay thanks for the feedback.

All of the cybercrime forums are now confirmed viewable by guests and search bots.

Cool, probably is a good idea to have that out there, never had thought about it much earlier to be honest. :silthumb:

The BBC coverage is at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8295945.stm

Dozens of people have been arrested in the US and in Egypt, accused of links to an alleged international identity theft ring targeting American banks.
