Ya.... 😅 It's an automated spam

100%. Probably some AI program written to join and then inundate any forum it can reasonably gain access to. Kinda like a bad ex-girlfriend.

I think the guys are on it, though. They’re slowly disappearing. Keep up the good fight - I’ve seen 3 accounts that are doing this so far, it’s gonna be like a match of tug-o-war!

I do find it interesting that every major airline out there shares the same phone number!
It's a guy in Hoboken who then communicates with each airline by smoke signals.
Wait, so my $80 first-class round trip from Houston to London might not be legit? So much for loading up on rich dark flake!
It as long as you don't mind flying cargo plane.

I might have to put all new accounts on manual approval for a while so I can enjoy my Saturday.
Good idea! But I must ask two questions--one, who is Manual, and two, is he qualified for such a task? What I mean is, did you vet him adequately beforehand, because he might secretly be a spam-bot too and merely masquerading as the guy perfectly suited for approving new accounts. This could have disastrous consequences, potentially a 50 or 60-pipe problem depending on bowl size, tobacco cut, cadence etc.
