I am a new member, so I do not have a friend. You can make friends with me. I want to learn more.
Thank you.

Welcome.

Tell us a bit about yourself. What sort of music do you like? What instrument do you play? What would you like to learn about?

If there's ever a shred of doubt whether something is spam, Google it.

I notice he joined at 3.07am and made his first post at 3.08am so I'm wondering if he managed somehow to avoid moderation.

He REEKS of seeding for spam, but no breach of forum rules. So his post was approved reluctantly, but there is a topic in the Mods forum where I've flagged him up as potentially seeding an account for future abuse.

He posted from a static IP in Vietnam, where a number of recent spammers have been trying to attack us.

This Feedback forum is often targeted by spammers, picked at random but they don't realise that it isn't used that often so they stick out like a sore thumb.

And you may well be interested to learn that today we had someone attempting to spam the forums with links to Valentines Day images.

If he spam posts elsewhere, or he edits his profile to add a signature spam link URL you can expect this entire topic to vanish. We need to do that for the housekeeping when we remove spam accounts from the back office.

Thanks for the background, Andy. Guess he'll softly and suddenly vanish away one day.
