People keep posting advertisements in their signatures, then they make one post (so that you can see the signature) and hope that it will attract people to their business... Honestly?

They're just spammers. But they try to fit right in, either commenting on the thread or asking a semi-related question, and the mods don't see past that.

They are usually robots.

And the mods (well, mod) tends to see past all that when he (me) logs on ;-)

There are one or two which I am not certain enough to delete, but I recon I have taken out 700odd spam posts in my time as mod.
