Theres a few of them springing up, registering at dodgy times of the early AM.

I think the Moderators or Admin need to look at this.

Well, OK, but they have not broken any rules. But we’ll keep an eye on this.

Any idea what they actually are, Art? Surely they aren’t actual real people. Its spam isn’t it?

If I was a betting person I’d have a cheeky fiver on them being bots.   

 

When they’ve got plenty in here they will start spamming it or they are collecting data of some kind to aid them later with their spamming.                   I’ve seen this once on a forum that I was a part of – no sooner you delete one or 2 of them then another 1 or 2 start posting in the middle of the night. 

Well spotted Lord Dio.
