No, she copies and pastes variations of her spam message over and over in a thread to make it look like people have actually been reading and interacting with the thread. It must be the lastest tactic from the Lagos School of Internet Riches. We have flood control on the forums, meaning you have to wait 1 minute between posts, so she(?) is obviously taking some time with this.

I guess one way to deter is if flood control could be increased to 2 minutes between posts. That would double the amount of time it takes for her to spread her scam. Mim, is this possible?
