    It's so odd :/ The reply here is relevant without repeating text. The Q/A is relevant. The username does't look like a string of random characters or a pasted together fake name with numbers. Maybe he has a personal connection to the software linked in his sig...?

    The reply is relevant, but also fairly generic, and with no reference to anything posted by anyone in the thread before. I wouldn't put it past a spambot to check for key terms ("work", "do for a living") in general discussion forums to post a couple of pre-defined responses.

    I'd definitely accept "dark elf anything" as a proper reply for someone who then goes on to make an ADOM related post. But this guy hasn't made an ADOM related post and has an ad in his signature, however subdued. I think there was a human involved in the registration process, but the ad is what the account is about.
    ADOM Guides - whatever you wanted to know about playing a certain class, but have been afraid to ask!

    Check out my youtube channel to see my ADOM videos, including a completed playthrough of the game. I try to give instructions, so if you want to see some place you haven't been before and get some hints on how to deal with it, this might help! There's also some other games featured there that you might find interesting.

    A quick search reveals the same link posted on other forums, under similarly generic replies.

    These days it's less bots and more real people spamming links, so posts often have some actual relevance to the topic, instead of quote random post -> "thanks for the info" or a random block of text.

    This guy either did a little reading about the game, or just knew it was a RPG and got lucky with what he came up.

    this bot also hasn't responded to my razzing it. if it were a bot worth staying, it would have.

    I vote we ban it.

    I don't deal with software patents though, so go easy on me!
