Get rid of DanielAndrew

It's obviously some kind of spam bot as it only post items for sale and never replies back to any comments.

This forum isn't really moderated anymore, but you can block him which should hide all of the posts.

Go to "User CP", "Edit Ignore List", and add the username

I'm probably going to do that. I have a slight theory that it might be associated with Pelican Parts in some way. I've personally sent the "moderator" a PM about Daniel with nothing happening about it. Past PM's have been acknowledged but not this one. ??? I've also noticed that Pelican has been pretty good about erasing other spam bots, but not this one. ??? I'm not a conspiracy kind of person but I am suspicious of this one.

The strange thing is that this Daniel guy posts links to Ebay auctions from different vendors. That part I don't understand. Is it some type of charity bot whose dream is to see all Boxster dismantlers thrive and prosper?

I believe he uses affiliate links, where he gets paid on click throughs. Probably doing this on dozens of forums.

I think I remember someone on here saying Daniel posted an add on here for a part they were selling on eBay and they didn't ask for it.

I think your right. It could be something like the program below.
