So, are we getting posts in old threads by forum bots?
« on: August 03, 2015, 05:24:37 AM »
I see these old threads getting dug up.  The new response is:

"Yes, I agree as well. "

Some type of forum bots?

Yes, I agree as well.

Defiance is a bot??

Just when you thought you knew someone.

2. What if there is a rock in the middle of a road, a blind person is speeding towards it, ...they say that they can't see it.   Would you recommend him to keep speeding?

I think it is arguably even more impressive.

These are Onidrilza's details, they are more or less the same as most of the stuff we get.

110.78.138.159 IP address location & more:
IP address [?]:    110.78.138.159 [Whois] [Reverse IP]
IP country code:    TH
IP address country:  Thailand
IP address state:    Krung Thep
IP address city:    Bangkok
IP postcode:    10200
IP address latitude:    13.7500
IP address longitude:    100.5167
ISP of this IP [?]:    CAT Telecom public company Ltd
Organization:    CAT Telecom public company Ltd


All the Bots we suffer are from this area. Sometimes they spoof an address through another country. I have no idea what they are trying to do - perhaps find some way of dumping adverts on the site, or it might be some script-kiddy trying out his skillz. The email address is always a hotmail/yahoo/gmail, etc throw away, so there's a possibility that they are wanting to provoke a response from a mod and thus find the mod's email address for spamming. Whatever it is, the messages seem to be taken from a generic list of phrases in poor English that will suit most situations.

Report them and they'll be banned.
