Yeah, I can see that

I'm being a little to intimate. I'm having a conversation with myself, basically.

Thanks for pointing that out (though I kind of knew it already, too).

In a nutshell:

Registration has been closed for a long time. I've been opening it up, randomly, here and there. One of the "people" who signed up had the above username, and made the above post on the DP. To me, it is clearly spam. To the untrained eye, like say, to the eye of a new mod, it might cause pause. (In fact it did.)

So I just decided to call attention to something people here never see, because normally it is taken care of. Spam on the Daily Paul is a rare occurrence. So I just wanted to point out what it looks like.

But it brings about interesting questions. Who are these people? I just killed about 10 more spam accounts.

Usernames like:

kittyredrickzkmqwel
gradyreedhtjiklit
eliotdon46gcudj
karin4971fkeftjuf

None of these usernames, btw, bear any resemblance to the email addresses they've registered with.

They are here to spam. Pirates are trying to knock the door down to get in here.

The question is why?

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
