A new user name “mobdroapkandroid” is a spambot. Racking up identical postings at a good clip. I flagged a few. Hopefully Cricket can clean it up soon.

Probably don’t need dozens of additional flags.

Good catch Kazooman, I just noticed another spammer by the name:itubeappdownload
There are 14 posts under this username already,I flagged one ,I don’t think Cricket needs more than that.

Just a thought.
If we had stickies on LJ,this post would have been a good candidate, we could all post our new spammers names in one post rather than flag each one .

Ted’s spam-bot is also running around today…....he quiiiiiccckkkkk! Flagged him up good, too.

One little tip: Whenever one of these spam-bots show up….I go to their profile, and block them. Everybody here can do that, and the spammer is shut off.

You need to post this over at Stumpy’s place for Cricket to see it sooner.
just sayin! :)

The odds of me seeing something in The Coffee Lounge are pretty slim.
