Incoming Spammer?
 
This poster's last 9 posts are exactly the same text.

Not sure of the context, if any. If this were a Cool New Member, I'd assume it's spam, so...

*if not spam, then at least post-count boosting, no?

I think it's just frustration on how a number of political conversations were going.

Fair, it's just strange to see 9+ posts that are all identical within a short time span. I'd be concerned that the user's account might have been compromised. :)

:shrug: post boosting then?

From the rules:
ABSOLUTELY NO:
• Padding your post count with one line posts or other attempts at flooding the forum with posts.

If these are legitimate posts, then fine. But it looks like spam and doesn't seem to add to any relevant discussions. :)


EDIT: I see now that the user is back to posting regularly, so if his account was compromised, it's not anymore, which is a relief. Admins, feel free to close this thread.

Yes I think that would be best...for my sanity.
