    I've seen bots on here have conversations with each other. Personally, I think they're taking over.

    Magmaster,


    It's just to annoy people if it's non-advertising. Sometimes if it's advertising spam, it could usually lead to virus downloads, crashes, etc.


    And if you wonder why they like to give you viruses, it's to gain all your information, and it eventually takes your accounts, makes spam accounts, takes bank account info, and, well, pretty much ruins your virtual life.

    I wouldn't do anything like the recent gigantic spam thing that yourphone posted unless I got paid.

    It's pretty ironic that a thread which was dead for 6 months about spam was revived by a spambot.

    Are you sure you understand the meaning of "spambot"?

    This thread was indeed bumped by a spambot. Then someone commented on an old post, and the spambot's post was deleted afterwards.

    I used to reply to spam, but that was on another forum. It was another VBulletin forum (I quit the forum earlier this year due to the fact that the forum had a virus), and one guy was spamming with links to a Viagra (o_e) website. I asked the person why he did that, and he just spammed some more -_-. I learned my lesson, and now I ignore spam.

    I saw advertising spam for some mafia RPG in another forum once, and I reported it. I'm not sure if it was a real person because even though everyone was reporting that guy, he kept posting the same spam over and over again in different threads. You don't know how annoying he/it was.
