Here's an interesting one, I'll let you be the judge. It's his first post and though the thread is about body painting, his reply is about being able to paint an airbus, and the link does go to related materials.

Ha - it looked like a signature line, but wasnt. I was able to simply remove the post and leave a note for the newbie. Probably a bot - who knows though.

Checked it out... my guess is it's a legit request. There are no secret embedded links, and it looks like it was written by someone with a so-so- to fair grasp of English for a native Russian speaker... and it's not selling anything, but asking for help. >>shrug<< Someone else may decide to pull it, but I can't see a reason to, not yet anyway...
