Spam user?
« on: April 11, 2012, 05:19:54 pm »
Sorting members by post count shows an user called frankscott39 on top, who has a whopping 134217.720 posts per day (!) and a signature which looks like spam.
However, when clicking show posts no single post shows up. I suspect, that the posts are blocked by some spam filter but counted neverthless.

Haha ;D

As long as it doesn't put much load on the database it gives the bot the 'feeling' everything is working fine and he does not need to adjust anything.
Aka slient ban. ;)

Last active in January (and was only "active" for a month).  To get post count that high how many "posts" did he do when he was active?  :o

The post count is wrong (this is a known bug in one of the mods that I use), to see the right one you must go in the "Show stats" section of the profile.

By the way, I've deleted the account.
