Rebekka's Israel IP address has now been banned, since it was also being used by several other people who hadn't posted but also had ICQ numbers and one who had also posted a generic hello.

What's to gain ? By the spammer I mean
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

I think it must be something to do with ICQ. Perhaps the spammer hopes that a friendly initial post might attract an ICQ response (which could lead who knows where). My advice is that it someone posts a generic hello which doesn't actually mention comics you shouldn't go overboard on the welcomes until they've posted a second time.

Cheers,

If someone posts such a generic greeting, neglects to give any real information about themselves and makes no mention of comics, 2000ad or anything like that it's fair to say they're probably suspect - especially if they use that 'hope I put this in the right forum' tell that seems to keep cropping up.

The fact that they use a female name is a probably a cynical attempt to attract more attention.

Thought we'd managed to hook another girl, but it turns out she was just virtual. Tho' I guess you guys are used to that ;-)
