I don't know if this is the right thread for it, but I have noticed that there is a bot on the chat, it's called FicBot.

Wulfy, Ficbot is the automated process that assigns people their moderator/operator status when they log into the chat, so that they don't have to do it themselves or wait for another moderator to do it, which can be a complex process if you don't know IRC.

You may notice I took action already. Killed the Bot, deleted the links, and yet as noted, I retained the posts and moved them to the Cookie Jar because the content made for a rather interesting read.

Yeah, sadly I’ve noticed spam miners in the past week or so have gotten more clever, and started posting content on sites that vaguely resembles its native content.
