    Since I've joined this forum I've magically started getting traffic from this site consistently without even putting my URL's up anywhere on here. Why is that?

    Yeah that's weird. At first I thought maybe someone was trying to access my control panels or something but I dunno. Guess I'll keep an eye on it.

    I'm getting the same here. Was a bit confused because I've never posted my website on here and I came on to double check

    Nope not at all that's what I thought was extremely weird about it. And I'm getting traffic from here on several of my websites. Strange to say the least.

    certainly worrying. i used my url in a pm, but never mentioned it on the open forum for obvious reasons. i'm watching my analytics constanlty now

    Yeah I haven't PM'ed anyone as I used to be a member but it's been quite some time so I set up a new account to start fresh. Plus I couldn't remember my login stuff regardless but all these are new sites which wouldn't have remotely come from here regardless. I'm gonna keep an eye on things at any rate.

    Same here, but I just added a rule to my firewall to block all traffic from this site as a referrer. Ain't nobody got no time for that.

    Also - the traffic is coming from Saint Petersburg and Moscow.

    This is not about that, filtering will not answer the question why
