Sardu, I don't know if you noticed or not....

But every post made by the spambot, lucysun, contains an imbedded link to another gaming network site.

True that, but I'm not sure

True that, but I'm not sure if he's a bot as he replied when I mentioned his link is missing on one of the threads. 

Also, while adding links to other gaming networks and spamming them all over the place isn't cool, at least it's about gw2. Maybe we should just ask him stop before pulling out the ban hammer? It's not all that different from linking a random gw2 article which happened a lot before the release, so there's a chance he just hasn't realized there's something wrong with it.

Talking about lucysun's threads, is it just me or does the "Guild Wars 2 Orange Set Show" (http://www.guildwars2hub.com/general-discussion/guild-wars-2-orange-set-show) keep showing up as new? I keep going "Ooh, something new! Wait, there's nothing here.. It's that orange thread again indecision

Every single forum I've used to spread anti guardian propaganda has subsequently died out on me. Coincidence? I think not!

Oh, I don't doubt that it is

Oh, I don't doubt that it is a person behind it, and not just a bot, but I do think that there is a difference between what we were doing here in pre-release and what lucysun is doing.  Using the Black Lion make-over kits as an example, I would have posted a link to the news release over at GW2.com.  lucysun does a copy/paste and specifically links a rehash of the GW2 press release from another gaming site (instead of the original news article) and imbeds the link (to said site) in the hopes of drawing traffic/cash-for-views etc.

Heck, a few for their more recent posts, this one for example (http://www.guildwars2hub.com/general-discussion/guard-your-homeland-comb...), borders on the WTF?!? level, and merely serves as a platform for imbedding an ad link.

I am sure that if any of us were going to their site and doing the same form of Hub-type spam we would be banned by their site staff for it.

Can't argue with that.

Can't argue with that.

Considering the recent forum activity though, one can't help but to wonder why would they even bother. I've seen what, 3 or so non-Lucysun posts in the last couple of weeks, one of them being a post complaining about Lucysun posts. laugh

Actually, forget what I said

Actually, forget what I said earlier. It's not even gw2 spam anymore and honestly, it's been going on long enough. Kill it with fire!

Hey Guys

First and foremost I'd like to apologise for not showing my face here often enough. I'm be hitting this bot hard in the coming days, so if you see any links/strange threads just post it here :)

We have runescape spam by Singerlovelife in here http://www.guildwars2hub.com/general-discussion/thumb-twiddling, here http://www.guildwars2hub.com/community-news/guild-wars-2-and-death-rattle-subscription-game-verge and a few other threads as well. 

I must say, that spammer managed to catch me off guard. Runescape spam, really? laugh
