So with this new forum, does someone get an auto email when we post a new topic?

looks like spam

Sorry it took so long... get rid of this but I have been out of town with family matters.
Thanks for all the input.

Probably not
I looked at Francisco Darrell's only other comment on BG. I am guessing he is the poster's teacher instructing him on the need for proper citation of quoted material.

Seems not to be -
The image was posted in April 2016. This comment is October 2020. Either that teacher is a very slow grader, or this is spam to trick Google for that plagiarism checking website

I didn't notice the dates. Both comments link to a website with a "hire editor" button. The comments seem almost but not quite appropriate. It my be one of those AI bots that have a rudimentary ability to comprehend and reply to posts. I suggest monitoring this user for other such activity. There are only two posts to date.

We suggest
removing those comments

I agree.


Not sure what their goal was...
...but they were booted.

Off-the-wall comment

Resume services spam...

Thanks Ken

Russian spam... back here.

Wonder if it has anything to do with...
...the elections?


Oh, no doubt

Russian spam One of several posts with links to a video in the In Remembrance thread. Translation of the title gives this: Aston Villa Newcastle watch online live video broadcast of the match. I'm assuming this isn't even remotely entomological.

Thanks for reporting.
The comments have been removed.

Exterminator spam...

Questionable link... this comment.

There is such a thing as liteblue, but this does not appear to be the correct URL (and liteblue does not appear to have anything to do with mailing bugs anyway).

Discord spam

Quick Brown Fox Spammer

Got it

Pest control spam

Got it
Thanks :)

Account profile spam
User with no contributions has used his Biography section to post a lengthy article on sports gambling.

I'll bet...
...he won't post with that account again :)
Thanks for reporting.

Not sure how you'd classify this one...
...but should be removed:

Not sure what that was all about, either...

This one from Benburned.

Whoops! I've been away too long...
...can't even cut-and-paste correctly. :( I meant this one:

Exterminator ad...

Thanks, Ken
I got it.

Recent ad for Pest Control

Thanks for reporting this.

Thanks again

odd one
this user has posted some strange comments and forum topics on several of the forums. Not quite spam but weird

It's gone.

It isn't over the top, but I think that this post sets a bad precedent.

Thanks Jeff
