OK, end of discussion.
1) I hope you think it's reasonable that the moderators of this forum try to avoid dodgy links in posts? So it would therefore be reasonable to investigate something that looked suspicious so the link could be removed to protect users of this forum?
2) A post pointing at a forum which at the time would have been empty apart from two initial messages from the admin would seem suspicious to me. Scammers/spammers want to entice you to visit other web sites to infect you with malware, shower you with spam, etc. Such web sites are often very rudimentary in their design/content. I know this because I see a lot of them whilst clearing scammers/spammers off this forum (as has niko).
3) On discovering a mostly empty web site, it would therefore seem reasonable to do a quick investigation to see if it was legitimate by doing a few more checks on it, e.g. who owns it. There's nothing on the forum to suggest who the admin is, so a quick domain check might reveal something.
4) On checking the domain, it appears to be owned by the person who made the initial "I just found a forum" post. Does it not seem odd that the probable creator of a web site who has probably posted the only two messages on that site reports it in the way they did in this forum? "...by the looks of it" is odd, surely the creator of a thing knows what it's for?
Like anyone else, Geoff is perfectly free to create his own forum and I wish him luck in running it because I know how much work goes into running one. However, forum ettiquette has long been that you don't use other forums to promote your own if the topics are closely related. If the original post here had been "I've created a new forum..." then even though that's a closely related topic I wouldn't have objected.
As you can see, I've left the original link intact for people to discover what's behind it. However, I've also left the discussion intact so that people can see the probable relationship between the person promoting the forum and the forum owner.
