    Default Spammer Announcement

    This tblood guy has been spamming up the forum via his dupes and posts like these:

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forums/346190-post4.html

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...85-post33.html

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...39-post28.html

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...4-post116.html

    There were a lot more examples, but we went through and deleted most of them last night.

    Anyhow, if you see it, report it. That way we can keep this junk off the forum because I'll ban the account instantly.

    The MO is quite simple: Sign up and act like the typical n00b, make a few posts, dump the spam in, make a few more normal posts, and then pick up the spam rate until banned.

    Again . . . see it, report it, ban it. Done and done.

    Thanks for your help.

    I don't see what the infraction was specifically. Is it just that he was so long-winded and sounded like an encyclopedia?

    I've banned two other accounts that made that same post above.

    But if you create five accounts with the sole purpose of dropping that and other such things into threads and then discussing it with yourself via your multiple accounts, then we're going to have a problem.

    What does the spammer get out of being a spammer? Feeling of power? They are just nuts?

    Usually, the point of being a spammer is playing the percentages. There will always be a portion of humanity that is naive/desperate/stupid enough to fall for your shit. So even if you hit millions of people (at basically no cost) and only 1% bite, you're laughing.

    Thing is, what exactly would they be "falling for" here?

    ^ Yes that was my question.

    I understand what trolls get out of trolling, but I don't understand the big thrill to spaming.

    Yeah but. Yeah but. What if the guy is a genuine MPD? Then you may be DISCRIMINATING. *Shudder.*

    Seriously, what's the issue?
