Warn people rather than sending notification for inappropriate link/texts in profile
We should warn people rather than sending notification to them for inappropriate links in profile. I had set a link in my profile long day ago. I usually "bought" that domain (in free). So recently it was expired and maybe it was renewed by someone else and set a forwarder to a pornographic website. Maybe someone reported to staff and a staff had removed that link and sent me a notification
Heads up! I've cleared the website field in your profile, because it links to a pornographic website. Ping me on Discord (@staff's_username#number) for questions.
The notification was looking like that (I removed staff name). When I saw that notification I thought it was a spam notification (and the database was attacked). So I started writing a post. Then I looked at my profile then see that a link is missing then I realized it's true. So I verified by visiting that link.
To be aware of this problems we should warn people rather than sending notification. (I don't care if I was warned, I wouldn't add much more links in profile anymore. When it comes to staff, I will be just silent and I will think their account was hacked or something wrong happened to their account)
