I second that last comment - they are either back already or have not yet been removed.

They appear to have some sort of online marketing firm but if their one sentence opening line is the best they can do I would not hire them to do my laundry much less my marketing.

Possible spammer in the "Unfinished Business 2017" campaign thread. Highly suspicious generic comment followed by a link by a new user:

"nice to read your thoughts on this campaign. thanks for your kind information check it out at".

On a personal note, I'd like to take these guys who set up these bots and cut their hands off at the elbows, throw them in an fire ants nest and watch the fun.

the common denominator seems to be this: 1800-570-1233

user: http://www.armorama.com/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=jassi2k4

other perpetrators:

http://www.armorama.com/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=Alexavindisel

a whole long list of various support services, seems like every internet provider in the universe but all use the same phone number: 1800-570-1233
