Its great that the OCN staff is active. I just reported one a few minutes ago which kept revivng a bunch of threads from as far back as 2010. Strange thing is these bots dont even spam ads or anything its just a line of semi/unrelated sentence about the thread.

A general tip to everyone.
Do NOT post about spam bots in the thread they're in. Simply report the post and be on your way.
Moderator recommendation is to report the first spam post you see from a certain user as Trivial, and any others following as Minor.
If you have the Mark as Held option, tick that box and that'll hide the spam post for moderator review.

Yup. They always post at night and bump threads that havent been posted in from 2 weeks to like 3 years.

Some of their posts do look real but then others are just copy pastes of the OPs post.
