We have a new (to here, anyway) kind of spammer that has been infiltrating the forum lately. It is not the usual bot, instead this one appears to post replies like a normal user, saying simple things like "Ya, I agree with you" and "Great post, thanks for sharing" and even more convincing posts that are actually on-topic and sounding like a contributing question or comment.
However, the link in their signature will direct you to the site they are trying to advertise, and their posts alone are not always on par with normal replies to a thread. Like in a thread about Sikorsky projects, they replied to me with "Interesting. Good luck on your project."
I have been banning this person repeatedly and removing their stuff, but they keep coming back and posting more. Just to let everyone, including the mods, know about this situation.

Is this why I keep seeing topic replies that don't even exist?
When I scroll through the homepage or the categories I see that there are apparentky new replies to a few topics, by a member I'm not familiar with. But when I go to the topic, there's no new reply from anyone. I assume that's a glitch from removing their posts?
