Subject: How it all goes down...

The bot starts posting at an odd hour of the day, posts the same message (or variations of it) several times a minute for about half an hour, then leaves. There's usually a couple hundred identical or near-identical posts in that much time.

Now, to disagree with Ed for a moment, there's no reason you can't use the other Board - just be forewarned that it's currently got security settings so you'll need to register your name (on ) before you can make new topics. Also, if you post in the middle of the bot's posting (look at the times of the posts - if the latest one was more than a couple minutes ago, you're probably safe), your post might get accidentally deleted as I go through and delete the pages upon pages of spam.
