    *note to mods.

    Everytime I have been on the site in the last couple of days a 'new' member quynhdao2020 appears to be creating a thread in one section or another but no new threads have yet to appear.

    I can't see his IP to work out where he's coming from or workout what he is upto but it does look suspicious. Why would anyone appear to be creating new threads for hours on end in different sub-forums but no new threads appear? :?

    Thanks for the tip. He's gone to greener pastures now.

    His registration details were a positive match for a known spambot from Vietnam.

    It's likely a bot, so it doesn't necessarily know/care that it's banned, it just browses forums and tries to post automatically.

    Either that or they don't have all pistons firing.

    Yep, it looks like an automated bot that will just keep trying to create threads - thankfully it's not a very bright bot :).
