Mods: List of spammers w/ links & search terms

Recommended Posts

I appreciate the effort, but this account has no posts, no sig, and no visitor messages yet, and the search doesn't yield lots of forum accounts on vB forums like you'd normally see for a spam account.

Please wait until an account actually posts spam in some way before reporting it in this thread, because if it doesn't have posts, a sig, or VMs, then a mod actually has to investigate a little deeper so that we don't mistakenly ban a legit account. If we DO end up banning a legit account, it's kind of a pain to unban because not all of the mods can remove an IP ban.

In other words, while it can be fun to do so, don't bother sitting there watching the members list trying to preemptively catch the bots.

Probably another "smart" one. Looks like a human spammer, but the sig link gives it away. It also posted a torrent link. Could be a helpful n00b that doesn't know that it's not a good idea to advertise your tattoo removal business on a random forum, esp. in a sig link. I think it's a bot, tho.

That's not chomping. I know it's supposed to be Pac-Man, but it's not animated, and there are no teeth. It's more like a totally silly smile than chomping.

Maybe a Chain Chomp from Mario would work...

I thought providing a list of the other accounts it signed up for all in one day, across ten pages of Google searches, would be enough evidence.

He/she's not spamming... he/she's just... not... being... alive? :tomatoface:

This guy just joined a dozen or so different forums in less than a few hours.

The email address supplied in some of the memberpages on those sites lists it as donavon56 at allaboutebooks.info, which is tied to a few sites that deal in ebooks.

Pretty unlikely that he would sign up for so many different boards so quickly, unless he's a spambot. Might want to keep an eye on it for now.

Spam link in his sig. Checking other forums that have the same member name, the profiles are identical, and they all signed up in within 24 hours. Some of them have already banned the account.

The link in his sig goes to an "internet marketing training center" where they sell programs on how to "sell" things on websites... so basically, it's spam on how to pay to learn how to spam. :lol:

See sig.

See sig. Also, his sig links to a diet supplement. Lots of single or 0 posts on lots of sites. He posts mostly on topic, so I suspect that it's actually a person or one very adaptive spambot.

The interesting thing about his post, is that while it's on topic, it's just copy and paste from this page (Under the header of "In Use" the middle of the second paragraph. Compare his post to that article, and it's word for word. I wonder how it did that.
