OK so the new spam bots are kind of an interesting evolution over the last generation. There's one, fengzi597, which created user profiles on something like 100+ forums remotely related to gaming. It's posted roughly 25 posts in each of them so far - they seem topical and like they're actually part of the conversations to a degree. All the posts it puts up with links though appear to be a set of identical spam advertisements for various F2P browser games.

I'm really not sure if this is a spamming bot or 50 guys with the same username manually doing the spamming to a degree. If it's a bot then I they beat the Turing test maybe.
