And fluff posts? Because I've seen quite a few of these recently, and I'm wondering whether it's because some black hat 'seo' company is trying to spam forums as a sneaky way of promoting clients or something. You know the format, something like this: There was one of these on TAZ recently and a quick Google search shows thousands of results for the same term all by dodgy members who posted only one or twice. Often you'll see another spammer/bot reply to the first one. Have you seen this kind of thing much? Do you delete said intros and ban said members as quickly as possible to stop your site being drowned in a deluge of fluff content? I think I've seen someone do something like this on my own forum once, but I wasn't sure enough to ban them yet and they thankfully seemed to have disappeared by now. Is there some company or ten out there trying to spam forums for links and selling it as 'seo'?
