    I saw this thread and thought it was a little odd, as it start off with "hello dear linux experts"... on a Windows 10 site :rolleyes::

    https://www.windows10forums.com/thr...r-as-a-nas-at-home-which-system-to-use.10914/

    I did a search for a snippet of text and it looks like that person has lifted this post from elsewhere (from a long time ago) and re-posted it elsewhere and then edited in spam links. They're also using a VPN to hide their location.

    It's a bit strange, so I thought I'd post about it in here in case you were wondering why I deleted something that looks semi-legit!

    Well you will have to send them an alert:

    rm -rf *

    Just to let them know you used Linux command to remove all content from forum's directory. :D
