Hi Sonia Sharma - Since you are new here, please introduce yourself. You have been posting in 3 year old threads and I would like to find out more about you. I will assume if you don't respond to this thread, you are actually a bot and I will remove your profile and all posts. Your posting behavior is more than abnormal for a regular user.

Thanks for understanding - we want to keep this forum, although we use it infrequently, spam and bot free.

It's good to see a few of us still check this every few days, even if we aren't posting.

Seemed like a pretty obvious bot to me - responded to a whole bunch of messages at the same time, with bland, non-specific statements possibly parsing a couple of words for context. So three choices really: Bot, astroturfer or really boring person.

LOL. What's an astroturfer? I haven't heard of that one before. Is that British slang? :ROFL:

*Edit* Interesting, Strong. I looked it up. I guess you really can learn something new everyday. Sorry for assuming it was some weird Brit term. Here's some info from wikipedia:

"Astroturfing is a form of advocacy in support of a political, organizational, or corporate agenda, designed to give the appearance of a "grassroots" movement. The goal of such campaigns is to disguise the efforts of a political and/or commercial entity as an independent public reaction to some political entity—a politician, political group, product, service or event. The term is a derivation of AstroTurf, a brand of synthetic carpeting designed to look like natural grass.

Astroturfers attempt to manipulate public opinion by both overt ("outreach", "awareness", etc.) and covert (disinformation) means. Astroturfing may be undertaken by an individual promoting a personal agenda, or highly organized professional groups with money from large corporations, unions, non-profits, or activist organizations. Very often, the efforts are conducted by political consultants who also specialize in opposition research. Beneficiaries are not "grass root" campaigners but distant organizations that orchestrate such campaigns."

Yeah, should probably have explained that one Ten. The good thing is that once you know about the phenomenon you see it everywhere - there are millions of examples from Wal-Mart to the Chinese government using them, and of course all things in between. I figured it was probably either just an auto-reply based on content (ie responding to key words) or getting enough presence on forums so that once it goes into "You know, I really love Pepsi" mode you wouldn't suspect it so much.

I always suspected, Ten, from the forums. The way you played CSS was good at making me think you weren't a bot, though - no machine would take so long to learn...

Another vague, content-free post. I guess it could be Loki...

Why TGO? What about a forum involving video games drew you here? Do you have a favorite such as TF2 or CSS, as these are the ones we mainly (used to) play? How about Call of Duty? What new things do you want to learn about?
