There are entities that can target and manipulate what you see, during your specific login session, in any general public forum like this.

It happens occasionally. We kill the account as soon as we see them. If you see something like that, alert us and let us know, and we'll check it out.

The link was actually to a site posing as the USPS. We removed the posts as quickly as possible. Unfortunately this sort of phishing scam is common these days and is one of the reasons we don't let new accounts start their own threads right away. Cleanup is pretty easy.
