I’ve seen 3 messages quite like that from 3 different guys over the past few days, each of them having exactly that 1 post. I have trouble telling if they’re doing it on purpose or not :o

They are attempts at spamming the forums with links for advertising or SEO link building … but the poster used the square-bracket syntax for links, used on most forums, which does not work on Envato forums. It’s just spam, reported yesterday. Should have been removed but it’s ineffective with the broken links.

such spam posts are not good sign…to post on the forums you must have an account and be loged in, this translates to something worser. Someone may find a way to build a bot that does it and they did a few tests for syntax…umm, of cource this is only a possibility.
