Testing a theory...
Just wondering if the spammers will follow me to this thread too. It’s so odd that they seem to be singling out my TOTW thread.
I think it is the word gold or the phrase “pot o gold” in that other thread. It looks rather like a bot of some sort, because I think some can look for key words. I am just amazed there are not many links in those posts. It ‘seems’ like wasted bot activity. ;)
I mod another forum where there is some kind of captcha to join and then the first posts are moderated before the poster gets free reign just to be sure they are really a member of the community. We catch nearly everything, but it has to be tended to daily.
