Is this user a Spambot? ~10 questions in a span of about 5 minutes o_0

First of all, I can say that I'm not spammer. And 'SamSol' is combination of my name and my surname.

I posted those questions that I could not find answers to from my 10 years of study and research. I always have innovative questions. Currently I'm an iPhone developer. Don't doubt about me. I'm always helpful.

Looks like quack was very diligently retagging them (damn, good work quickly) and then noticed they were all from the same user... Yeah, it looks questionable to me, too.

Were the questions simply copy-pasted from another forum? If so, we should definitely discourage that, even though it'd probably be okay if they were instead posted at a rate of 1/day instead of 1/30sec.


The display name says it all:

  SamSol

"ol" is a "p" spun around and separated.

  SamSp

Now place the 5th letter before the 2nd (those being the first and third prime numbers).

  Spams

And if you add up all the digits using hexavigesimal, you get 666...

  • @ess: You can make anything line up with anything else. For example, I see two different ways to connect this to 42. – Gnome May 31 '10 at 18:50

  • @Sam: The bit about your username was simple fun that no one should have taken seriously. Ten questions in 5 minutes is questionable, which the serious part of my answer is about. – Gnome Jul 22 '10 at 11:22

I don't think so, he does has comments and downvote (revoked, but from badge), accepted answers on stackoverflow.

    Same pattern on SO, plenty of questions asked in a row. Maybe it's legitimate, he was simply very curious about a lot of things. But it looks strange to have so many questions at same time. – Gnoupi May 31 '10 at 7:34

    @Gnoupi, Yeah, could be sock puppets or just spammer, but I wanted to say that he do more than a bot. – S.Mark May 31 '10 at 7:38
  • @Mark - As @Gnoupi mentioned, the timing (or the lack of any time difference) is what made/makes me suspicious – Sathya May 31 '10 at 18:41
