Default Spam on Form

I have not told many people my latest Email address so it has been quite spam free.

But the form on the website has attracted a lot of funny-format stuff that looks as if it could be HTML. They are easy to recognise and delete so I can live with it.

I did try and open one but it led me to a list of links which if I tried to open gave me a very rude message that said I should install a virus protection program (which I already have of course), then I could not delete the message, and any attempt to install would have left me with a trojan. So I had to reboot and then run my own virus program which deleted the trojan in the temporary input area.

So the advice is good. Do not open any message unless it is from a source that you know to be OK.
