Topic: Spammers' Hobbies
I hope this post isn't in bad taste.
I read an explanation from Duane a while back about how a lot of "new members" were really just spammers. So, I looked at the profile of a couple of new members, just out of curiosity. There's been a lot of good people joining us, but the Spam Members are (almost) funny. They seem to have no posts, but have a link in their profile to some questionable enterprise. Of course that stinks, but I was curious if these user-names turned up anyplace else on a Google search. I just looked at this guy whose "other interests" would be pretty odd if they were true. Apparently they join several forums in the same day to sneak their links in.
This "guy's" link led to some kind of ticket brokers. Here's the forums this one fake guy joined this week. Besides Chumby:
Juicebox Support Forum
Parrot Forum USA/Canada
Words4ever Famous Quotes
Bangladesh Premier Cricket League
Technopark Trivandrum Forum
(And those are just the ones Google indexed so far.)
Poor Duane trying to weed out these people. (I guess we all should be presumed innocent.) This fake guys' interests are so weird, he almost sounds like me. Too bad they never post, I can't imagine what they'd write. But I'm sure it's just some nasty program spitting this stuff out. The crazy robots really are taking over.
