I'm wondering if some folks aren't starting to program spambots to provide a post that make them appear to beliving being. With so many spambots following the same basic pattern it becomes easier to spot them and at least temporarily remove them. So why not break the pattern and make it more difficult to spot a spambot?

Of course the flip side is that it is exactly what you said. The net allows for anonimity so anyone with malicous intent could simply go in and seek to harm others either through viruses or through a system that steals their personal information.

In either case I'm just thankful you're trying to watch out for us and keep us safe when we visit the forum.
