Of course we welcome new members here all the time. But on occasion we get a new member that joins and starts making a lot of post replies that look like these.

well said
i agree
thank you
i like that
cool
well said
etc.

These types of posts don't add to a conversation. And...

They do the same thing as a post bot that is being used to up post counts so the new account can post links. 99% of the time these are spammers.

What happens when we see this type of activity? The account gets banned.

Don't do this. Add to the conversations, let people get to know you. Be part of the community. Don't be a post bot. :)

LOL....classic botty behavior!

At one of the forums I moderate the bots always seem to make 6 posts and then leave. Not 3, Not 7....always 6....every day.

Do you get those here??
