Why are so many popping up the past couple days.
Normally I don't ever see them. Today alone I have reported at least 2-3 threads while having seen at least 2 more.
My guess? The same "controller" just launched a bunch of new ones at MMO-C is on their target list. They'll ban them all soon enough and in a few days they'll dwindle.
i remember a few years ago there was loads around here, always linking to this same chinese shopping site, like 10 times a day. not sure why they've popped back up.
We're aware of the issue.
In the mean time, just keep reporting them so we can get rid of them as soon as possible.
