Why all of the trolls in the "Introduce Yourself" section?

Posted 15 January 2013 - 04:36 AM

I keep seeing a lot of robotic-like troll posts from "new" members in the introduce yourself section lately. I'm wondering do the moderators eliminate those accounts eventually or do they just sit there in the database. Here are a couple of recent examples:
Troll #1
Troll #2

Thank you for bringing this up. Tis nothing more than your garden variety spam. A mod will probably take care of this. Theres really no need to make a thread for this, there is a report button on every post, so just click that and they mods will take care of it.

Yeah you especially don't want to make a thread like this in the lounge as it will get trolled here.
