For great justice!
There is a sneaky spammer loose on the boards. Over the past week or so I have removed many posts by this person/bot/whatever, but it's hard to track because their method is insidious and clever. Here's what's up:
At first, the post seems like a normal Construct post. IT IS ALWAYS ON TOPIC TO THE THREAD...
"How is that possible?" you ask? "Is this crazy spammer actually using Construct? Did they go so far as to learn to make games in order to weasel their way into our community?" No, they did not. The answer is deceptively simple:
They simply select part of a post from earlier in the thread and copypasta. If you're just skimming through, you're likely not to notice anything out of place. They even copied one of Ashley's posts in one thread... funny how a newbie with only one post is suddenly a developer commenting on the future of Construct.
All offenders so far have just one post. All of them post in current topics (no thread necromancy). The spam links so far have all gone to clothing or jewelry sites (DO NOT EVER CLICK ON THE SPAM LINKS! We don't want to feed them).
It's getting tough to keep track, so please... if you see any posts like this then click the report button. You'd be doing the forum a great service
