Hi Dev, welcome to the forum. I hope you find useful info here.

So... obvious question... you write plays?

Weird thing is, he did the exact same "hello" post this same day on another forum where I'm a member. That forum had nothing to do with writing whatsoever.

Edited to add: Things get even wierder. I just did a Google search on his name. (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22Dev+Tej+Kohli%22) The results speak for themselves, although I'm not entirely sure what they are saying.

Huh. And if you do the search minus the "hi-this is" they're all eliminated except one site. I don't get it. What kind of spam is this?

Probably an anagram for a multi-level marketing "opportunity".

Huh? I just did the search minus the "hi-this is" and got more than 49,000 results.

Far as I can see, they're all in the last couple of days.

This is very, very weird. Anyone here good at codes? Does the name translate to something else?

I phrased that poorly. I did the search as:

"Dev Tej Kohli" -"hi-this is"

So it would only show pages that had the name but did NOT have the phrase "hi-this" anywhere on the page.

Does that make more sense?

Anyway, I still don't get the point. Unless it's some sort of automated spam thing that's going to try to beat forum moderators by establishing itself as an "active member" with some vague, general comments before the real spam comes???

Proof-of-concept for a spam-bot that can automatically sign up on V-Bulletin boards. Expect to be flooded with offers for CH3AP V14GRA and T3XAS-H0LDEM.

As long as the cheap Viagra is delivered as promised, no problemo!

But it makes ya wonder how come they/it decided to post here, in this forum/subdirectory. We may never know.

Just don't speak the username backwards at midnight under a full Moon. Bad things happen.

Yep, that's one of the strange parts. Why in the world in the playwriting subforum?

Greasy Spoon-- aha! Now I get it. Thanks.

I'll unregister the bot, just in case something more sinister is going to come of it.

Hang on a minute... it filled out a (brief) profile.

Can a bot do that?!

Yup, that's what's so puzzling, I looked at the profile info before I replied to the first post. Machines, impersonating humans!! Or human, being mistaken for machine?

If it's a bot that is designed to sign up on bulletin boards, and if you look at the google hits, it's always the same posts and that on a dozen boards, so I doubt it's anything else but a bot, so if it's designed to do that, I'm sure it's also designed to fill out those spaces that are on practially every forum, like, sex and occupation and stuffs.

I vote for bot.

Yes; a bot written for vBulletin sites could do that.

Because it is taking over the world, one playwright at a time. I mean, if I were going to take over the world, I would start with playwrights. Obviously.
