    Just made an account to chime in, MOB actually stands for "Monster or Beast" heard this being thrown around in the early MMO days, more than likely from MUD's or ADD though.

    It actually is short for 'mobile', the term comes from MUD1 way back in the late 70s.

    Monster or Beast? Like for real?
    What's the difference anyway?

    I... I... I am just going to ask. Are you a spambot?

    Considering he has an advertisement in his signature, I'd say he's a bot. On the other hand, that web page says the product is free... Well, if it's a bot, it won't answer.

    I first deleted the post, went to delete the member and saw he'd actually answered the test question with something reasonable, went back and looked at the post and realised it was actually relevant to the thread (referring to an earlier post). It could be a new breed of very clever bot, but ignoring the sig link he's seems perfectly legit.

    Well, gut and Grey, you both have links in their signatures

    Maybe he's the guy who actually works on this player - then it's natural to advertise it whenever you go.

    I now hope this is a bot... and STILL replies. How cool would that be?

    "Heheh, you wouldn't believe how often this comes up in my journey across the internet. Anyway, goodbye for now guys, take care."
