Guys, please ban this user:
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=14002

It's been spamming before (and Trash Heap'd), but has returned recently for more of the same treatment.

Spam on necro:ed thread (10 years old) by "William2789"
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=14100


Another similar spammer here: "james1212", posting in an eight year old thread.
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=14104


(at least the spams have *some* relevance to the thread topic)

Spammer 'kiemcom' seems to be selling school tests.
(I guess it never passed any turing tests itself.)

1. One wall-of-text bot "onlineeva" with (somewhat relevant) spamlink in profile. (2 posts so far, varying text mass)

http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=14109

2. A spambot "Justin Goodwin" talking to a sock puppet "Connie Carrol" in a thread about being too stupid&lazy to study in school. (recurring spam-link in thread)

http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=14110
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=14111

3. And what is the user 'rushi99' trying to say? No spam links though.

Thanks for linking to profiles, I cleaned up the posts and the admins should do the rest.

I have no idea why some known spambots haven't been banned yet, but frankly I have no frequent communication with the admins.

Another nonsense reply posting with just a link by 'rushi99'...a broken spambot perhaps?
...in a site news thread from 2011.

Post Trash Heap'd and topic locked. I wish there was a way to auto-lock all topics within a certain age threshold.
