Title: Lol, the latest Neutered User

Lol, this clown signed up so he could do "silent spamming", where he just adds his lousy little links to his signature but never posts anything:

http://botscout.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=122

Somehow his links got changed, and of course he also got added to the BotScout database.

As Bugs Bunny would say, "What a maroon!"

Yeah, you get two kinds of spammers. The kind who strike instantly, put up the spam they have and get their accounts deleted, and the kind who actually pretend to be real new members at first but who you can tell are just spammers with relative ease. Their introductions tend to sound something like this:

"hello i am newbie her! my name is bobby and my favourite food is pizza! my favourite show is lost! i look forward to posting more on your site!"

I don't get why they do it. I know when somebody is a real person and that is when they talk about things relevant to the forum they are on. Besides, what on earth do they gain from posting irrelevant crap on the board and then doing nothing else? At least the bona-fide spammers actually fulfil their purpose. These idiots are just in for a joke and do it because they've probably got nothing else to do!

But seriously, on a website dedicated to tracking down spambots, I thought you'd be well defended against any threats from them? I've been here about ten minutes and I've already seen spam topics here and there! Stay sharp. Don't want to let your reputation down...

By the way, congratulations for your good selection of prefabricated avatars! You had the good taste of adding a Queen one to the list. I wanted to upload one of my own but there's no need to now I've got one of my favourite musicians as my avatar! I love Queen and their music. Just about anything old is good in my book. Nothing new though! Can't stand the "music" we get nowadays! Sorry to offend any fans of modern bands here but come on. The Jonas Brothers and all these crap Disney kids' songs represent a failing musical generation and I can't stand pop artists like Rihanna whose generic, repetitive lyrics seem to garner the manic applause of brainless young idiots who flock in their thousands to buy her records! Classic rock rules.
