Strange img attachments.

Regarding the posts seen HERE, what is the (or is there a) purpose of the jpg that's included in the post? Nothing shows up on the first two posts even though the jpg is in the post (seen when "Reply to Thread" or "Find All Posts by..." is selected). On the third post the jpg shows up as an "."

When the img addy is cut/pasted to my address bar, a blank page is all that shows up. It's obvious by the content of the posts that this is someone w/o clue one of what this forum is about, and either has not or cannot read the thread, so there is some other reason that they registered here from India (if I understand where JP is) as a member.

The link is not working for me (those search links expire). What's the exact term that you were searching for, or the exact link that you had clicked on?

The jpg is "h ttp://www.primeaffiliate.com/track/images/20.creation.jpg" (a space is added between the first and second letters of 'http' to mung it).

One of the posts can be seen: World's Smallest V-12, post #15.

BTW, this same img appears in other forum threads. Probably innocuous, but curious why it accompanies a post made by someone who is obviously not in sync w/this forum's subject matter.

Oh, thanks, good eye. That's a 1-pixel tracking image, placed by a spammer. I've deleted those posts, and suspended that user.
