I just found one: 'Plusades'.
I'm reporting both of his posts.
I already did. :)

The more people do it, the better! (Unless the mods don't like to get spammed by twenty messages if there happens to be a spam bot somewhere)

This reminds me of something. It has actually happened before that there was a fire in a city, many people were watching it, but nobody actually called the emergency services until 20 minutes later. Everyone assumed that it was done by someone else already.

Too bad you can't report users to the moderator... If I view the memberlist there are some users which were made to link to certain sites... Isn't there an option to delete all users with 0 posts who haven't been active after the day they signed up? That would clean up a lot of those spam accounts, and there is a low possibility that real users will be deleted, because real users don't create an account to abandon it right after they signed up. And if they do, well, that indicates they don't use it at all.

There is an option to delete all of the users with 0 posts, that's all. Terry, thinking that lurkers' accounts would be erased, posted a note saying why their account were erased, when he first did that.
He already did it at least four times.

EDIT: For those wondering, making signatures not allowed here was something Terry did to avoid spambots (its mentioned in the thread on the 1st link).

I think it is a spambot, but it's far from being the only one...

Or maybe they're not spambots, but spamhumans!

Maybe this one is one too, since it hasn't been active since some minutes after it registered and it has the globe.
I'm almost sure that everyone that has a username starting with "sania" is a spambot because one of them posted a spam post and after it was erased, I saw lots of those users in the "last member" area, only changing the number (and apparently some letters).
Also, I believe that "spamhumans" are called spammers.

I think that a user with a username starting with a word, then one or two numbers, then another word, is likely to be spam. Look who registered last: 'Toma55lika'! The description matches the sania-bots' too: Female, united states!
