Question about Private Messages:

Yes, I know it is probably in the wrong place to ask, but I wonder if you can get viruses and such trough the Private Messages?

I reject your reality and substitute my own!!!

Nerdy. Weird. AWESOME.
No worries, man. Just as a security warning, if you receive external links from a username you don't recognize, I recommend ignoring the PM. If a person is being problematic, click the yellow triangle to holler at the moderators.

In addition, if you think an advertisement is a problem, please report it to Eddie in this thread.

Well if there's bugs in the forum software then it's theoretically possible.
Life is simple: it has no nontrivial normal subgroups.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
