    Hello

    I need 5 posts before I can send links. Name of thread was "describe yourself" when I was going to reply I saw this "already pinged" -text with links. Since I do not know if that was "drug" like medication or "drug" like illegal drug I did not replied thread at all. I just thought it is better ask what it means.

    It was not in the title, links came when I was going to reply. I send those links when I get my 5th post.

    Ok, I quoted it

    Already pinged:

    * Drug Rehab
    * consumer reporter ...

    Is this just normal and harmless, I am just asking because it includes word "drug"

    Your post didn't show because of the moderation rules here. I've approved the post, but removed the links as they are old spam links.

    No need. FlowerFairy is talking about a forum feature called Pingbacks whish as been used by a spammer to post spam links in that thread.
