xiaoni990 will be a tasty snack, I think. This one's tricky, it's posting in pre-existing threads.

prajan disguises its spam, but not nearly well enough. The posts make sense in context (must be an 'umie, not a bot) but they all have unrelated links at the bottom.

Simongbo is in the writer's forum getting me all excited that the serial collaberation is back up Sad

I actually think prajan might be real, if only with unrelated links Confused

We remain unconvinced it has any purpose here other than to post the links - the rest is window dressing.

Unless you'd like to prove us wrong, prajan?

I was undecided about prajan for some time. But the latest round of posts convinced me: the prajan account's a spammer. I removed all the account's posts and zapped it.

Since it appears to have been an actual human being, and posted things that were reasonable enough to prompt people to respond, this means that there are now some threads with continuity problems. Consider it practice for dealing with life's ambiguities.

I sort of wondered about that, myself. I saw the posts in question, they were definitely leaning toward the spammer area. That said... well, no, that's about it.

Weird, though, that this was obviously a human at the controls. Or maybe the bots are just getting REALLY clever?

They've started programing bots to have grammar mistakes?
