Those account names are auto-generated: spam bots - only limited human intervention.

Poor chaps, each time they check back the Sports Lounge their previous eggs are gone as a result of a few mouse-clicks.

It's a real pain in the ass that you have to wait 30 seconds between spam reports. Just saying.....

It was quiet in the Sports Forum for a while. They're rapid fire again around the 4:00 am eastern time.

I usually get several of the Korean spammers most nights starting around 6pm my time. Iím happy to do my part to help to eliminate them from our beloved Bimmerpost.

The forced delay is annoying indeed. Yet, they might care you stay cool (notice the shooter's articulation: he's covering his opponents with words no less than with shells).

Existing member hasn't posted since 1/1/22 and then the spam one. There was another one earlier today but it looks like it was already taken down.

Looks like they gave up a couple of days ago. I expect them to return someday.

All waves of bot posts were systematically merged, all contents subsequently removed. It only took a couple of mouse-clicks to regularly sanitize. Without these operations the targeted sections would have become disrupted by many nonsense threads.

All those bot efforts were to no avail. Only footprint remaining: hundreds of banned accounts and logged IPs.

If they do, you have us to help corral them.
