Is DanielAndrew a spambot?

I'm not up on the newest technology, but could he be a new type of spambot? He's never had one comment and the products he post are for a variety of different people. It makes me wonder if it's some new kind of programming to get past safeguards that catch other spam from getting blocked

pretty sure he's a spambot.
this forum uses pretty old code, though, so I feel like it doesn't take new tech for bots to get through

I never noticed his ads were for different ebay sellers. Thats odd. Wonder if the links are going direct to ebay, or passing through a link shortener (bit.ly or whatever it is)? Maybe he's trying to drive traffic somewhere for kick backs. This is getting beyond my knowledge base to be honest. Haha.

Not to do with Daniel. But I have gotten a couple private messages responding to my want ads that were definitely scams/spam. "I know a guy with the part your looking for. Email or call so&so below." Yeah, ok. I'll send that check right over to the nigerian prince in missouri. Haha.

I have a low post count, but zero is a little too suspicious. Haha.

Is there a way to report "suspicious" accounts to the forum moderators?
