@Administrative I don't speak internet but it seems this thread has some sort of "address" that the spammers have and automatically come to this thread to post?

Or might this be a prank from a disgruntled forum member?

Spammers often use automated bots to do this - our forum software is a popular choice - so they've probably just got automation that does some sort of auto scroll or tab and posts automatically to where ever it has landed. I checked the IPs of the spammer and they don't cross check to any member IPs (doesn't mean they didn't us a VPN). Either way, their accounts are banned.

Fortunately our forum software also has pretty good spam account protections, so we don't get too many of these!

I updated the first post to make clear to everyone that the use of "Let's... go ..Brandon" or any derivative of this results in a warning. Google this if you are curious why, but suffice to say it is a partisan political attack.
