    The little things are always the best.

    What is the point of editing the links of old posts? Do they expect the 40 or so people who visit EoFF more than once a month to click the links? Or is it for increasing the page ranking in Google by having our site as a reference for their page?

    The most recent one about call girls made me chuckle. I thought about leaving it with the links removed but the name of the site was plastered all over the post.

    I imagine they're just looking for any low-hanging fruit where they can script something to maybe make a buck or two. It's the forum equivalent of someone calling you up and saying they're from Microsoft and your computer is compromised!!! Like, 99% of everyone won't fall for it, but whoever does click through and buy something will offset the minimal investment by a substantial amount.

    Not directly related but Reply All had an amazing podcast about Indian tech support scammers where their investigation just goes totally off the rails:

    I think it all depends on what country you live in and what available brokers are in your area. And then just look for the reports on each broker individually to make your choice!

    In fact, it is better to read reviews of real people about brokers and choose the one that suits you best. Personally did this when I was learning to play poker. Wish you luck.

    It's funny that they just regularly grab this thread.

    This thread has become the half empty can of coke you leave out at a picnic to attract all the wasps.

    There's also a trend of what I call sleeper bots. They usually name themselves FirstName1FirstName2, have no avatar and make a couple of really generic replies to threads. They then return 3-6 months later to edit in spam links to their posts. It's pretty crafty because they slip under the radar and nobody is checking those threads so the links stay there.

    When I'm not banning them on sight, sometimes I like to give them FF related profile makeovers just so it's something more fun and interesting to see than their bland empty profiles. For example, I don't know if it's all that funny, but it's the little things, right?
    haha, man post some pictures of it Do you know any of bots they use?

    This is a strange topic, but for some reason, it attracts bots. If everyone here is talking about what he is interested in, then I think I will share news in the world of cryptocurrency. In particular, I am interested in bitcoin as well as most virtual currency fans. I am sure that you can find a number of opportunities for investors in it because now bitcoin has reached a colossal amount, namely 66555 dollars. That is why transactions through Paul's Crypto Valut are advantages that help make more profitable and reliable cryptocurrency transactions.

    "Paul's Crypto Vault", is it....?

    I recall one making the argument that Psychotic was a bot, but perhaps... Are the bots all Psychotic?
