FYI, when you see gibberish or really off-topic posts with no structure or a post about product like videos or purses, it's spam. They want to sell you crap. Whatever you do, DON'T click on the links. Some of them can infect your computer. So it will do you no good to ask the poster what it is cos there's no one from the spammers that actually reads the responses. It's automated and they're looking for people foolish enough to click on their links. Spam is against the TOS and the mods will delete it when they see it. However, there are a lot of posts to read here and the mods may not see it. Especially since most of the spam comes at night. So if you see spam like this, help out the mods and click on the report (!) button on the left. That way they have a heads up and can zap it away.

Hey Everyone,

All invision boards (like this one) are being hit with SPAM. if you see a post with links selling products, etc, please "Report" them. Mods will be able to view the Spammers profile and then "flag" them. Flagging a spammer will remove all their posts and automatically ban them so they can't make anymore posts. Thank you for your cooperation and patience. :)

I think so too, I'm a member on some boards and they also had this SPAM thing. But I've never seen a "member" who posted twice or more often, they always post something and then they register again.
Although there aren't people in front of the monitor I think there are robots from the computer.
