Sorry about that. User has been banned.

It happens sadly but there's really nothing that can stop them until you see it happen. :/

At least they provided a nice corpus of keywords for us to check against in the future! :) It'll also likely lead to a rate limiter on new posts for spam detection.

Not trying to bug any of you since I know you all have things to do but the same user is back with a different id. It does this around 11 PM - 1 AM PST it looks like. :/

Both are banned. Unfortunately I have been sleeping regular hours for a change and missing out on these bots as they pop up. We are taking action to proactively stop them though.
