    My only question is why someone would do this? What was the benefit/thrill/damage she intended?

    Spamming

    Viral marketing for that site/book maybe? Or maybe virus spreading (but I used HTTP GET to check the page and didn't see anything bad there).

    P.S. Shouldn't this be moved to Off-Topic and merged with the other thread.

    Spam or Not Spam

    Of course not. They're doing the right thing and PMing a moderator to warn them about this. :tounge:

    Trying to be underhanded in their method by keeping it in PMs (I guess hoping nobody would say anything), thus keeping it out of open forum where you guys would slap them around a bit...LOL:tounge:
