bossman1000

I can't tell if he's a real real real person... or just spam that decided to get a profile and post weird posts on random shit. He/She also got an avatar. Sooo maybe an advanced form of Spam or just weird person who just hit 30. They've been here since July... so I dunno.

Re: bossman1000

Was it determined bossman was a spammer?

I'm just curious. I didn't read through every post, but his behavior was a little different than most who spam. He posted over several different days and didn't post short answers while appearing to build up a post count.

I realize a spam post could have been deleted, so that's why I'm just asking for clarification. On the surface, it appears as if he was given the boot because Solid Snake was suspicious.

Re: bossman1000

His registration email is listed in Stop Forum Spam's database, he's posting from a spammer haven (Ludhiana, India, not "Beach, California"), and he's mostly/entirely copying and pasting from other forums. For example:



Every comment he's posted also appears on two different "download this movie now" sites (scraping/stealing from various message boards?), and presumably he was about to start shilling for one of them.

Re: bossman1000

Thanks for the answer, Adam. I couldn't have told you that such a database existed before your reply.

A to you for taking the time to check this guy out. If it were up to me, you'd be getting a raise in pay.

Re: bossman1000

Interesting info on the spam database. I guess I should have realized there was such a thing.

That's right. None of ya'll motherfuckers better get on my bad side. Do not even attempt to make an eyebrow raising element. Cuz then I give the word and bam. You gone, bitch.
