Do the scammers that come on this site have to join as we do, their names are often a jumble of letters only, if not how do they ‘get in’ ?

Bobbi // how do they ‘get in’ ?//
They don't, they get zapped.
i assume that spammers have to register with ab to post, which is a total waste of their time . . .

Danny they do get in for a few seconds though
I was just curious ael
The spam that appears on The AnswerBank is from real people, not robots. They sign up to The AnswerBank like everybody else.

Thanks Spare Ed, you’d think they’d learn ;)
You don't even have to give your real name Bobbie. I must admit I haven't. It's not an elite or private site? But you soon get zapped when spamming becomes obvious.
It must be the same spammer much of the time though as they have the same 'MO'- they usually post 2 spam posts both together at the same time.
They are zapped but some hang around for an hour or so if no mods around orEds not in.
Am still not sure why answerbank can filter out lots of words but never tries to filter out Keto or Gummies

Yes they do s good job getting them I agree Pat
All they have to do is get on and post something and they've won.
Unless you have a spam detecotr it's impossible to stop
Yes am pretty sure once there on theres an imprint on the web and it boosts something on there status, ranking or something else I dont understand.
They must benefit from it as they keep doing it.

Yet to what end, they achieve nothing at all !
ich, // is get on and post something and they've won//
How so when, mostly, the post is only there for a matter of seconds?
Bobb, as I have mentioned many times when you've suggested that approach , there are legitimate threads that mention Keto.

Do a search.
Like I say, all you need to do is get your advert out there and you have succeeded, albeit only for as long as it gets zapped. It has to be better than nothing
Keto is a legitimate term as Mamya has said. Its just not legitimate in the way spammers use it...it's not a "product".
//Bobb, as I have mentioned many times when you've suggested that approach , there are legitimate threads that mention Keto.

There are very few questions with KETO in them and some of those are asking about spam. The spam posts on keto far exceed genuine ones especially from new users so that dont wash with me sorry.
I think it suits AB too to have this spam even if just for a few seconds as it boosts the traffic counts and even tho the posters banned it will count in the number of users and so help attract paid advertisers
Email the team and see if they can get the techies on to it.
So Bob, if I want to advise someone about keto as a dietary choice, I can expect to see it ***'d out because of spammers. Sorry, that doesn't wash.
they get paid to do it.
