Attack of the bots?

Post by GuyM »

So -

Some odd patterns in the discussion here, where a newly registered user provides the answer to an old question, sourced from another website

viewtopic.php?f=18&t=762&p=12951#p12951
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=788&p=12950#p12950

Now I have answered LMJGTFY (Let Me Just Google That For You) to people in the past, but I'm not sure tagging a few googled sentences onto the end of a discussion from a couple of years ago is really adding value.

Do you think these are bots? Just curious....

There might be a small group of people trying to test the forum, but they don't look like bots. We certainly don't encourage this kind of posts and the situation is monitored.

That's great; just seemed a bit, well weird.
