    When they make that many accounts with differing user names across a wide variety of sites to ask social engineering questions with zero interaction otherwise… they’re either a bot or a bot. Take your pick.

    It's just a lonely individual with a very strange and annoying habit. He's been doing it for well over 10 years.

    Bots have been doing this for over 20. Unless you have evidence it’s a real person to present I’ll go with the only logical answer.

    If it was a lonely individual they would be responding to posts in the thread for human interaction.

    He is a bot. You, on the other hand, post with the intention of getting infracted and banned.

    He's not a bot or he'd be banned already. And yes, I am purposely trying to get banned. .

    Because he doesn't have the willpower to just quit the site and doesn't have the determination to have his account permabanned/deleted.

    Look at that - still not a single mod or admin in here to shut this down. Still no sign of any activity at all. None of you think that's curious at all? How long do most of us go without being infracted or banned? Much less time than this, and I speak from experience. Guess we have our answer.

    Maybe this thread hasn't been closed is due to the mods being volunteers and it's the weekend?

    I mean, if there was meant to be some kind of cover up or a conspiracy here....wouldn't the first thing they do be to shut this thread down?

    It's just a weirdo who gets a kick out of posting inane threads, that's all it is.

    There's a guy on another forum I used to use who currently has 1.2 million posts and counting. Yes, one point two million, and the vast majority of them are just responses in game threads like "A to Z of films starting with The" with no interaction at all.

    From this thread we can tell it's a male bot too.

    Just ignore it. It's the only solution to anything on this forum. People are only banned if they are baited into it and the baiter never pays the price or if you are politically different from the mod of the particular forum and you need to be silenced.

    Oh, believe me - there's plenty of mod coverage on the weekend. And ask yourself this - if there weren't, wouldn't this place go insane every weekend? Have you ever actually seen that happen?

    I don't know, reporting doesn't always do or mean anything, though I do appreciate and sympathize with how difficult moderating something must be.

    So a simple Google search of of "reecejackox" which is the account name @Chicken Drummer uses on hundreds of other forums... and you end up going down a rabbit hole of the exact same threads being spammed across these hundreds of other forums. My Little Pony, Big Bang Theory, House Price Cash, UK Football... and that's just on the first damn page.


    But I found this thread: https://www.northstandchat.com/showt...14-Reecejackox

    Permaban.

    This is either a bot or a serial troller who seems to get off on posting information-gathering threads on a wide variety of fora, most of which he/it has been banned from.

    Take care if you choose to reply to his/its phishing.

    I can only imagine what other threads of "ban this user" have popped up citing the exact same reasons MMO-C has been saying for like 2 years now, lmao


    Here is one where the community of this forums made a thread making fun of him. I suppose MMO-C would label this as "trolling": https://www.wrestlingforum.com/threa...ys-on.2373274/


    Say what you will; the same exact user who is spamming hundreds and hundreds of threads across hundreds and hundreds of forums that are completely irrelevant to the threads being posted? I suppose MMO-C is just the odd one out who think it's a bot. /shrug

    The bot used to have a different name (which I can't quite remember) before this Chicken account. The original one was banned, and it popped straight back up with a new account.

    It's so annoying.

    There have been even more annoying posters over the years... I'm still irritated at the thought of Jaylock /shudder.

    Fundamental civil rights are only "political" if you're trying to take them away from people.
