They come in waves, and I think they sometimes spam, wait for the spam to get nuked and the staff member to logoff/go invis, and start again. I don't think Captcha will work on this after all, it's almost certainly a human being.

I wish it was a human so we could finally figure out what they are trying to accomplish. This is the very first spambot I've ever seen that doesn't include links with their spam.

I just want to know what their goal is.

They can't post links, I think, because of restrictions on new posters. I wonder if they know that.

They seem to focus on the forum sections with highest viewers, though maybe I'm seeing a pattern where there isn't one.

The script just spams a few search keywords on as many top ranked websites as possible, to fool search engines into ranking their own sites higher.

But these bots are only here. I don't see them on any other forums or any other sites. Not to mention Grim Dawn's forums are not that popular when you compare traffic to other gaming forums.
