The spammers are getting more clever every day.

Why does a spam bot introduce itself?

Not sure what you're asking here Vash. This is one of the major limitations of the web. I don't know if you're asking a rhetorical question to poke fun at the new member, or if you think it's a valid member and you're questioning my assessment.

I'm not questioning your judgement at all, I agree, thats a spam bot. I just dont understand what this spambot is trying to accomplish. Most offer you porn, penis enlargement pills or free ringtones. This new breed offers you nothing. Its content to just come by and say hi. Is it programmed to wait till someone PM's it, and then its going to respond with the ussual lines, or are we so conditioned by spam that we no longer have to have it mentioned to us, and just seing an incredibly fake sexi nick is enough to make us want to buy porn?

The only thing I've come up with so far is that it's an attempt to be accepted on the forum before posting spam. I don't know what that would accomplish since they would surely be banned as soon as they posted spam. Perhaps it's an attempt to make contact with and gather info from members?

In any case, I sent a PM and an email, so I'll report back if I receive anything.

im as confused as you are vash. it makes no sense. your gonna get banned the first spam post so why not just post it and get it over with? maybe computers have developed AI and this is their first attempt at comunication.....that seems like the only logical explanation.

Skynet has become self aware and it's just a matter of time before the machines unleash Armageddon upon the human race.

I think the idea is that when this bot posts it's spam and gets banned there will be at least 20 more waiting that are not banned yet. I suggest that the site setup the first avatar picture named A1 with a pic that says I'm a Spam bot, ban me!

I don't remember if there was one when I joined, but those random pics of letters and numbers that you must type into a box work really well also.

I just really want a bike with a turbo, because their are those times when you pull up too a stop light next to a cop, and I think a really loud PPTTTSHIIISHHHHHHHH would make his day. =P
