they're getting smarter. i was watching our latest example, freaturesprize, for the last couple of days, simply because of the username. now they log in, lay low for a couple of days, then share their stuff, sometimes even semi-relevant. i can't wait to see orientalladies' coming-out post. :bananadance:

He said he shot a lot. Was that when he was a Russian GRU plant in Ukraine?

I saw your two reports, but one of them was just an old event announcement from someone who otherwise seems to be a legitimate member. I left that one alone.

OK. The link seemed fishy so I didn't click. So many new members in a wave, so I had flashbacks. :)

if they don't bother to log out on their first visit, i suspect they were a failed spam attempt.

We're a total target. I sort of scorched the last one a bit too hot, as he never came back.

it's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.
before i did computers, i got a psych degree. skinnerian behaviorist, none of this touchy-feely stuff, give 'em the electric shocks. people are fascinating. and disgusting. and boring. perfectly sensible and totally insane. humans. i don't believe aliens have been here, because if they're smart enough to get here, they'd have seen the danger, quarantined and exterminated us. out beyond the edge of the solar system there are probably signs, "detour, road closed go around".
sometimes i get a little dyspeptic.

if your handle is an actual name, (especially female) first and last, you might be a spammer.
if your handle ends in numbers, you might be a spammer

Yeah, they fail the spam bot and never compete the registration.

Also, I suspect we have at least one troll :)

at least one. :shh: no hurry, i'm not done toying with him.
but when this one's gone there will be another and another. their lives must be terribly dull. like mine but with a massive helping of bitter, which they wish to share.

sometimes i think they like it and once outed come back in a new identity for more. way too S&M for my taste, but different strokes for different folks, and so on, and so on, and scooby dooby doo..

very much not a spammer, interesting nonetheless.
new member creates account, spends next almost 9 hours scanning forum? there's a lot to see here, but seriously.
