You locked that topic I see:
http://69.49.140.245/mp/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=946 - Business help in China

Strange thing is, this guy/bot posted exactly the same thing under almost the same name on a completely different forum. I wonder why, I mean, he's not selling viagra or anything. Perhaps he is a scammer???
Oh well you recognised this anyway as fake (obviously).

He's been warned as well. If he posts again we'll block his IP address and report him.

Yes, it's just - WHY? If he were selling viagra, or Russian brides, I'd understand. But this?

Actually, we deleted his messages but he keeps registering using different years as his username. Could you perhaps PM me his IP? (Deleting his messages also deleted his IP-record.)

We've deleted most of his messages and locked the only thread he started so we still have a record of his IP address. Have also got it written down on a badger in case I lose the online record.

As far as I can tell, this is the only name he's been using from that IP address. Previous spammers came from a different IP address (on a different continent) as far as I can tell (although if you've got records of spammers I've missed please let me know.)

No, anyway this is the first time I have encountered the same spammer on different - totally unrelated - sites. But it was the same johndoe1957 fool.

Actually I would like to have that IP address. This same guy keeps registering on an history / archeology forum that I moderate, but we do not record his IP as he never posts a message. Still. Registering twelve times with almost indentical names is useless.

(Obviously there are ways to get the board to record it nevertheless when he registers but I am not a php writer, I am just a moderator.)

Could you perhaps PM it to me so that I could stop him from registering himself more and more? (He uses different email addresses each time so banning an email address is not going to stop him.)
