Larry Hryb posted some advise to follow Xbox Live or other Microsoft beta or preview programs to avoid falling into spammy website &links. “All Beta programs we run at Microsoft are run through Microsoft Connect. If you receive an email (or see a website) claiming to invite you to be part of a beta and are unsure and don’t want to immediately click on any links here’s what you can do to help protect yourself: look closely at the link and make sure it points to http://connect.microsoft.com. If you were invited to be a part of any preview or beta program, once you sign in to Connect with Windows LIVE ID that received an email, you’ll see a survey that you need to complete for beta program you were invited to participate in. Once you do that you’ll be in a pending status for the program. If you don’t see a survey to complete, then you’ve no pending beta programs to participate in.”
