My, but the spambots are getting creative these days...
Yes they are, they try to make it seem like they are legit posts (by copying from other websites, as the bot above used this
post.) They then edit their post a couple days later when they think no one will read them and add spam links to them so their sites get higher in search rankings. More information can be found in the announcement: Just A Friendly Reminder (Regarding Suspicious Posts)
. Please report these users if you see anymore.
We have a topic in the Staff forum with a list of users/topics that look like they may do this so we can watch them carefully and take action ASAP once they edit their posts. We cannot do this before as they have not committed any offence. The most we could do is lock the "suspicious" posts before then but we don't plan to do that in case the post actually is legit and the user needs to update their post. Although we could check the legit post's date and see if it has been solved, you never know if someone has the same question and just doesn't want to re-word it. I'm still discussing this with Arris on what we our plan will be. For now, just report suspicious posts.
