I suspected so, how are you so sure?

Feel free to use the 'reporting' feature of the forum when you see more such posts, by the way.

The post is off-topic and simply a copy of an older post :
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=59#p146

Oh, I've done that, but as I didn't get response, and the reported user/post is still there, I didn't use that feature anymore.
You wont more? Here you go:
ConnieKeefe : viewtopic.php?f=24&t=13158&p=57855#p57855
(Copy part of the top post)
riham: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=10640&p=57828#p57828
(off-topic and as well a simple old post copy)
Already have change his signature to a spam link.
I've talked with GraysonPeddie about this issue here:
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=13223#p57991

Those bots are easy to detect, as they use all the same "engine". Register, set a simple signature, make a post with copied old content. Wait some time and then change the signature to commercial off-topic stuff.
I've 2-3 of those every week in my own forum. Didn't know, how we could avoid that they could register,

I just realizes that ConnieKeefe have change his signature as well already.

Ah, I usually do delete the reported users (and their posts).

Thanks, those seem to have been the last ones in the queue, guess I missed them. Removed those and the 'zohaa' mentioned in the thread you linked.

Adding a 'custom security question' worked surprisingly well in the past, I suppose they've cracked this one now though. I wonder if this'd be as simple as updating the question ;).

Make a new one, something like "type in last 8 symbols of md5sum of base64 of this text" :)

You can 'report' his posts, too.

Looks like the user has been deleted already though.
