I doubt that's a spammer, the person just had a question.

That was my reaction too, but he's linking to a post which no longer exists, so apparently the admins think he had something.

The "question" was the comment "well" on a three-year-old topic, with a link in the user's profile to a website. So, spam.

I just checked the profile and saw no link (I also saw no link on the "well" post). Was there one that was removed?

Yeah, it must have been. I won't do them the honor of posting the link itself, but this Google search on the link shows it to be spam.

I'm surprised it's happening to us (it's very common in MMOs), but it looks like zonhin's account has been compromised.

I doubt it's a joke because it doesn't seem to have any relevance to the topic.

I don't think that either one is spamming the thread. For one thing the later post "superfungames.cn" doesn't exist.(At least it says it doesn't exist on my computer)

And the first one was a joke. (Chronologically order of posts)

Um, it's relevant to the topic because spambots aren't actual human beings?

Yeah, he's pretending to be a spambot instead of a Real Human Being. Hey, zohnin, could you post a normal post here?

It is my opinion that the joke tree has now branched out too many times. Who got it? Who didn't? I guess we'll never know.

If that isn't a spam run waiting to happen, I don't know what is...

(no signature (yet), but still a necro-post with irrelevant content, two other throw-away posts and the homepage set to some spammy site advertising yet another DVD-to-iPod converter... :sick)

np: Jean Jaques Perrey & Luke Vibert - Messy Hop (Moog Acid)

That's not exactly spam, but it is uselessness. Considering the homepage and bumpings, I doubt the signature won't be spam.

That's actually quite odd. moonmoon's other posts aren't utterly random, but it's not like they're especially contentful. (Take this one--it's just close enough to following the thread for it to make sense, even though it's only two words and sort of a necro. Perhaps it's a bot that searches for the word "confused" and quotes it with "still confused"?)

But the profile URL is unquestionably spam.

Been a while since this topic was active.

But wwwdaiyang is clearly a spammer.

Not again...

If at least it had been DROD power levelling - but WoW? That's so off topic for this forum it's off the scale...

np: Modwheelmood - The Great Destroyer (Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D)

Not warned, it's a spambot. They won't understand warnings.

We better hurry, it posted in 4 forums already!

If we're not careful, silly actual forum users will use all their mod points ranking this spambot down!

Action must be taken. But not modpoints.

What about for people with near infinite amounts of modpoints (which I suspect is the case)?

Then we might run out of banpoints.

By the way, did you know you can point to a specific post in a thread if you right click the little notepad icon next to the post's title and "copy shortcut"?

Do the spammers get wiped from the registered account list?

Just because our huge milestones could be delayed more than people think.
