That's good to know.

Say what you will, but to me it's all but unfathomable that this Cloudy person isn't a spammer. Hopefully we'll know for sure once they spam post some more.

Spammers usually post a lot of stuff unrelated to the topic. If looks like english isn't this guy's first language, but he isn't posting nearly enough to qualify as a spammer.

Nah, I'm just poking fun. This thread was silly from the start :P

I assure you, English isn't the first language of most people on the Internet, including yours truly. It's only when their posts look like they've been made via Google Translate that you should be suspicious.

You do have a point about the guy posting markedly little; perhaps he should not be considered a spammer in the traditional sense, but merely an advertiser?

Until he starts to you know advertise I don't think we can even call him that.

Despite the suspicious signs, his lack of doing anything a spambot does kind of throws your whole theory off.

It would help if you actually went to the sites in his sig, especially that Wi-Fi one. If linking to that sort of shit in one's sig isn't advertising, then I don't know what is.

I find it harder and harder to believe you're serious. Yes, posting about shit we should buy or subscribe to would be even more blatant, but putting it in one's sig is only marginally less obvious.

EDIT: Two of his three posts are now gone; I wonder whether this should tell us something. I've also reported him, so now we wait.

Humm the fact that two of his posts are gone is weird, I did not read the topics they were in, perhaps they were wildly off topic and therefor from a spam bot.

Any who as far as reporting him goes how will that help or prove anything?

Edit: I tried to PM him and got a message saying

If I got that right, you are willing to concede that while the user account itself was legit, two of its posts were automated spam? Makes perfect sense.

Anywho, as far as reporting him goes, how will that help or prove anything?

Having someone who should actually know about this sort of thing (which I assume is a requirement for being a moderator) look at this guy should help end this argument.
