Potential Spam bots(This is a observation)

Post by OrigamiasaEnthusiast »

Disclaimer: This is an observation by me, which I identified as a potential spam problem. If it turns out otherwise, well, this is just an observation :oops:
Hello all. I have noticed a lot of new members with names ending with 'cron'. Also, on their profiles I have noticed all the locations are Russia,their occupations and interests are in Russian(Bulgarian??), and I have seen less members lately in the member count, with 1 less in the next day(deleted?), and their websites are links to business websites. This is an observation, this may not be a spam bot problem, but I am still alerting the mods, just in case.
Thank you mods for all you do for the forum, just letting you know(about both the spam problem and thanking you)!

P.S.
Cron means "The origin of the name cron is from the Greek word for time, χρόνος (chronos). Cron is most suitable for scheduling repetitive tasks. Scheduling one-time tasks can be accomplished using the associated at utility."
:shock:
Sounds like spam to me.
However, plenty of new users are coming in that are perfectly wonderful, don't get me wrong, who contribute some helpful stuff.(Can I even say "new users" when I am so new to the forum?)
