Was it all a dream?

Postby poohcarrot » Mon Feb 14, 2011 12:34 pm

Could have sworn I just read 6 posts by an illiterate AI spambot called curl. I was just about to register for his site and start posting offensive comments on his forum, but it vanished!! :shock:

Must be my age, I'm cracking up. :(

I zapped the posts almost as fast as curl could post them. They really were nonsense. I've asked Jason to ban him/her/it. :wink:

The TV, film, theatre forum is a popular place for these spambots. Presumably they search for certain films or TV shows so they can peddle their crappy download sites. :roll:

I always tend to be suspicious of any new member that posts straight onto this part of the forum and doesn't even mention Discworld.

I'm always suspicious of anyone who writes complete nonsense like curl did. For example, pip or Del. They both write complete nonsense. I wouldn't trust either of them as far as I could throw them, if I were me. :lol:

I'd have been more suspicious if it was from Howanderland. :lol:

Hi everyone,

I'm an ex-pat who's been living in Japan for the past 14 years.
I've been a fan since Pyramids came out.

In my first post I nailed my colours to the mast. I mentioned Pyramids, and insulted "crazy creationists". :lol:
