Forum: General

Hello
I have noticed that last few threads on this forum were all made my some kind of bots or something promoting their websites.

Does this happen often?

We've gotten a pretty big wave of them lately. I'm hoping An eventually creates a mod team to clean up spam threads like them.

"No, this doesn't happen very often, it's a very common phenomenon, I'm not sure what's causing it. It's a bit like an internet bot that you can't control.

"You're probably thinking, 'Oh I don't care if this happens every time I post on this site. I just don't know if there are people out there who would care if this happens. But I'm sure that it would be nice to see a few people that have some kind of interest in the topic that's being addressed.
"If I'm going through a lot of the posts and see if I've made it a habit, I'm sure that there would probably be a few people that would like to be able to see the content and see if there's anything else they'd like to add to this post.
"I don't think it's that uncommon. It happens to a lot of people every day.
I'd like to see a little more people who are not like that."

I think it is possible that there is some sort of "bot" or other that has a different view of this topic than my robotic opinion of it.

It's just something I don't want to do and don't know what to do with it and I'm just not sure. I would like a few of my friends that I have met and people who are interested to learn more. I'd like some people to come forward to help with the process. If I could just say that this is a very rare occurrence I wouldn't have any issues, it would just help a lot.

It seems like it could happen a little less frequently but that's a personal issue that is going to come up in future threads, and I'd love to get some feedback and help with this one too.
