    I found this forum on an EDU domain

    http://www.virginia.edu/residencelife/ircresidents/forum/index.php

    Now you can see it seems to be a forum that was put up and is being spammed to hell and back with no moderation.

    My question is, are links from a site like this going to be beneficial? besides the fact that one day we may see it come down and you lose those links, surely even though its an .edu site this sort of forum wont do much for rankings?

    Curious to hear your thoughts?

    There are plenty of .edu blogs that have very little spam. Just find some ones with less spam and your links will be more valuable. I wouldn't put my links on a site like that to avoid a penalty. Hope this helps.
