This appears to be a spambot, and he links to a website about black magic, which is pretty odd.



In other news, I've heard computer techies discussing spambot goals and techniques. Often, they'll post a seemingly-innocuous post with no commercial advertisements. Then, months or years later, they'll edit their posts long after anybody remembers them, to include a link to a commercial site.

Another technique I've heard them use is to link the spambot protection (e.g. Captcha graphics, etc.) to a separate site, like a dating site or a quiz site, and use those as quiz or IQ questions for real people. So they effectively link up a real person to answer forum registration captchas to bypass the "are you a human?" test.

Pretty devious.

Spambot by the name of brendabub in the Dark Beyond posting about 7th heaven... Really seems odd that it is promoting a show so old... Has another post is for Mario Land 3D in Roleplaying Games with a banner add attached as a pic...

Spambot by the name of najla in the cafe de nuit RP forum posted a topic named Fitted Kitchens South Wales and is the only post... Its signature is also a link...

Shame it seems they are not even trying to make them seem human anymore!

Post Re: Reporting Spam
A member seems highly suspicious as possibly being a foul spambot construct... Search the posts by a member named sallyoo and you should see what I mean...

I believe her to be a minion of the darkness and demand that this thing be investigated so that we might give her a fair and honest... BURN THE HERITIC!!!

Sorry witch hunting impulse kicked in...

But seriously check this one out!!!

All the more reason. Cats are evil. Haven't you seen the latest QtR? :arijani:

Hunte appears to be posting stuff that's very barely relevant, drawing a keyword or two from the preceding posts and then posting that in a generic context while adding absolutely nothing to the discussion.

I am outraged - how dare they do my job for me! :evil:

...plus their sig line does have a spam link to a store.
