I live off of everybody's taxes and am a burden on society. My list of skills are few.

I have acquired mighty computer skillz at the expense of social skills... unless you want to discuss comic books, sci-fi movies, or computer games, that is.

He's obviously talking about Ceekay's photoshopping skills.  I mean don't we all wish we could take our own pictures, slap on a pink bandana and then proudly trot it around as a 'fictionalization' of what we look like? I mean, doth the lady protest too much or what?

Only if I can get time off from my job at Kentucky Fried Chicken that involves me selling biscuits and gravy across the Southlands  :slywink: (that's it, I'm watching that movie again tonight!)

Actually the whole pink banadana thing wasn't me,  that Pimp of the Sea had the skillz himself!

I wouldn't be surprised as we've had a fire sale on lame spammers lately.  What's weird is there's no links in the original post so I'm not sure what's being spammed.

How can a spambot do this?  I thought there was manual registration stuff you have to do?  And why bother to post just once?

The question I have is why.  Why bother posting when there is obviously no spam here.  There is no point to this post at all....

Only reason I suspect is because there is the exact same message on another forum I visit.

http://www.vgamin.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=38756

And that is a spambot - there is a link in his profile to said site (didn't click it, though).

Funny thing is, he posted that post on a ton of boards (Googled a line from it and saw a ton of hits).

Interesting more than anything.

Maybe he is an alien sociology project, getting people to confide their super powers to him, so he can silently crush them using his ill-begotten knowledge.

I think this thread is going to depress anyone who tried to start a forum topic but got a few (or no) replies.

Seriously. We keep a list at OO of the spambots we've had to ban and I think we're up to three pages. This is even with us actively changing techniques to prevent them from even registering. It will die down for a month or so and we'll get hit with another couple waves of them. I know Gedd is working on a rather inventive solution though. I don't know enough about PHP to intelligently talk about what it is, but if you want to share tips feel free to shoot me a PM smile.
