Many suspicious companies make bots that spam the forums to sell strange products. Half the time, these products have nothing to do with anime or the "needs" of an anime fan. Use to be that the mods were slow as hell to deleteing those, but after the new influx of mods, they are usually nuked pretty fast.
Things to do when seeing a bot threadEdit
- Report it and move on
- Increase your post count
- Turn it into a chat/spam thread
- If the forums are being heavily modded, try to see how many posts can get in before nuke
- Ignore it like 99% of MAL.
