    No forum is immune these days as the term "spambots" is really a misnomer, it's more likely people sat in offices in India and Thailand and China and the like getting paid to manually sign up to forums and post spam.
    Please do not PM or Email me directly about your CD Key issues, follow the guidance in this thread instead.

    Probably a template they got and just copy&paste.

    Changed the thread title just for Placebo.
    However I still call them spambots as such a stupid work is inhuman, hence bots.

    If there's a template, can't you automatically flag up suspicious posts using the commonly used words?
    Documentation is not a dirty word.

    The spammers of today's wave of spammers were atrocious. I offered multiple to send my credit card details via PM, but got no reply.

    Children these days just don't work for the money like they used to.
