What is up with all these wierd nonsense robot posts?
« on: December 20, 2018, 11:30:02 pm »
What is up with these wierd posts. At first I thought they were just from people that had difficulty with english, but now it's pretty obvious that they are bots.  I can't figure out what the point is. They don't try to advertise anything... just put junk out on the forums

They definitely all read to me like a bot trying to come across as a human

Probably just testing the waters or some proof of concept.

Maybe on a different forum they would be spouting out something more relatable,
but sci-fi scale modeling ... probably not.

Whatever it is seems to be hell-bent on getting "information". This can mean only one thing:

I am guessing that someone is testing their bot script or something.

I've noticed this too...bots were the first thing to cross my mind. We should spam their inbox with similar sounding replies lol.
