Too simple a 'bot to give up? Prob'ly.

Everything "upowerleveling34" has posted so far appears to be quite clearly spam.

Why are the spam bots targeting WPC? It's not like we get a lot of traffic compared to some other sites...

1. They're bots, they crawl the web for any forums and attack them, regardless of size. It doesn't really cost more to attack a thousand forums than it does to attack a million, so why not attack them all?
2. SEO. As in Search Engine Optimisation. The more sites link to your site, the higher your site ranks in Google. While it matters how big or relevant the site is, every single one adds to the total. And in fact on bigger forums your posts are more likely to get deleted, but I've seen a ton of small forums completely overrun by bots as the owners have just given up on the daily battle.
Also, bots like to target forums that use PHPBB. vBulletin (like here) is a veritable safehouse from bots compared to the revolving door that is PHPBB's security system.
And therein lies the $200 price difference (among other things)

Wish they were all this easy.

May not be spam but a new user with the name of VIAGRAskafenn appears to be advertising happy pills in his profile.

Another advertising new user
I can agree with that, if that was my username, i would expect to be banned as a standard anti-spam procedure, of course some people will use that sort of name from time to time, but surely they can contact admin to be re-instated if they are a real person?
Sorry I was asleep. Is that allowed?
You're a macho Aussie who shouldn't need sleep.
Only had 4 hours as it was. Up till 2am with wife cooking, then woken at 6am by
I envy you the little ones, even so.
I'm afraid any of mine would get trained real quick not to wake the bear, though...
Have you taken out Viagrass, or whoever this latest is, yet?
Yeah, all three of them this morning.

You took 3 viagras this morning? Damn, that will keep you up all night tonight!
I see that VIAGRAgross was already banned even though I was the first vistor to its user page. :b: :b:
They should be punished for not even trying to hide. It's insulting, it is.

BU finally got some of those naughty blue pills, I see. Congratulations.
It looks like this bot didn't cause me to miss greeting a newb- but really, it's got to stop.
-had nothing to do with this currently still-registering user.
Locutus swung by and zapped the last one, but not the one before.
