View Full Version : Those random threads full of gibberish

What are they and where do they come from?

I've seen a couple of them now and each time they're here it sort of looks like a little attack where there'll be mutliple threads all with interesting titles related to the game or a quote from a trailer or something like that but the actual post is just full of random gibberish about a show, sport or anything else unrelated to AC.

Glad they're usually removed quickly but could anyone tell me what they are and why they hit the AC forums occasionally?

Never seen 'em before, myself. Been reporting them though.

They're spam. They copy the title from other posts and post random gibberish with links to advertising.

It's made by a bot, not a human.

I know that but why us!? (read it dramatically XD)

Probably it goes to a lot of different forums.

We aren't that special.

Hi. It's just spam bots. We remove them as fast as we can.

Closing since the thread really has nothing to do with AC and not really a good idea to make a thread about the bots :).
