Notice to all Tom's Hardware patrons

There has been a dramatic increase in the volume of spam in the Mac OS X section. Many are spam posts from illegitimate websites. Be wary when you ask for advice concerning data recovery, file conversion, DVD conversion etc.

Many of them link to:
*Commercial websites (some legit, but free software alternatives can be found easily)
*Malware-laden sites
*Non-relevant sites
*Inappropriate sites

How to tell
*Few posts
*Recent joining date
*Posts on the same topic/about the same software
*Bad grammar and spelling

Be careful what posters you trust

We are a community of volunteers, we cannot filter every single scam as soon as it emerges so please report it and the issue will be resolved promptly!
