Does the reporting feature work when I click the little exclamation mark?
Also, what's the point of these bots that compose random nonsensical nonsense sentences?
Is it some primitive ai trying to communicate, or am I supposed to be intrigued by some of the randpm words and thus compelled to click a link?

Yeah, the reporting feature works, as far as I know.
I've reported several over the last week or two, and they do get deleted.
Or is that coincidence?

Maybe a Mod should let us know whether our reports are getting through to them.
You can't report a post more than once, so the system sees it as reported at least.

As for this method of advertising, are there really still people who would click links in posts like that?
The Internet has been around long enough now for people to know better.

Krush.

It is not the people they're posting this for... it is Google. Googlebot indexes stuff like this and gives more "importance" to any linked sites it finds - especially from a relatively high PR site like these forums.

That's the dark side of SEO.

We do see the reports on messages. We have access to a list of reported messages, and when viewing the board all reported messages are visibly flagged as such, so it's pretty hard to miss.
