He's in this forum too, https://forum.hddguru.com/memberlist.ph ... le&u=40887 as well as in RecoveryForce forum, https://www.recoveryforce.com/forums/me ... ile&u=1264. An "AI" experiment?

Posts that turn out to be absolutly "silly" (that look like jokes) are deleted and the users are banned. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

AI is getting scary. I recently read an article, half of which was written by a human, and half by ChatGPT. I couldn't tell the difference.

However, in this case I suspect that the user is setting themselves up to promote some spammy data recovery software.

Fully agree.
Most likely they will change the profile later to include the link to what they want to promote + change signature with link to get more visibility by having google index it as this forum is very popular, etc....

Hopefully it will be *just* some sort of data recovery software because on my site it tends to be stuff like "buy viagra online" kind of stuff....

The AI bot appears to be Polish (according to the flag):

https://www.overclock.net/threads/will-i-benefit-with-new-ddr4-memory.1803368/

Here it is asking for a refund:

I hope Data-Medics take the opportunity to play with this bot. It would be interesting to watch.

Ask the bot which data recovery software it prefers.

Contact it via PM.

On my Recovery Force forums, I lock the editing of suspected spammer posts just in case I forget about them and they don't get caught as spammers before they start editing posts.

It was already banned on my forum, though I left the one post there. The is the second bot with similary style posting that I've had this month, so I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of them. So, the next time it happens, I might just do that with the PM and see where it leads.

Q: what is the best flash recovery software?

A: The best flash recovery software depends on your specific needs and requirements. Some popular options include Recuva, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, and Stellar Data Recovery.


I see it has weaknesses :)

That was its last post, on Sunday, just before it was banned by an admin. Or am I missing something?

It looks like I'm missing something because I can't see any ban. :-?
