Does anyone have an idea why the spam posts always seem to wind up in the Toys n Stuff subforum?

I think they mistake toys for "toys", if you catch my drift.

Wink.

Did you say wink or did you wink?


RIP Hacker.

Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more?

I assume it's because it contains the word "stuff" so I guess spambots would be more attracted to it?

I've seen a forum that had a bot-collection board called "off-topic", which was created with that specific name for the sole purpose of collecting all of the spam in one forum so it could be ignored easier.

As my other forum got raped by these spambots as well, I can say that however they choose their victims, it's not from forum names. Nor is it activity.
