Sorry for bumping this thread but I want to ask a question. If a member posts in the same thread using his alt accounts (with a similar response) and he is wearing a signature. Is this considered spamming?

Eg: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1041138.msg11237976#msg11237976

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1041138.msg11239220#msg11239220

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=839065.msg11239535#msg11239535

The users appear to be alts.

I think that would be considered spam. I haven't seen this kind of thing before though, or at least not as obvious as this guy. Three accounts, all with similar activity, all with the same signature, and they post one after another. Going through some of the posts on those accounts, they don't seem very constructive either.

A simple question, have you reported those posts with the "Report to moderator" function? This is the unique and fast way to report any form of spam.

I reported those posts now as I dint know whether or not they are considered as spam and many of my earlier reports have been excluded. These posts are in the local section and especially in the off topic section so I guess they won't be deleted or the user may not get a ban for it. I have seen other members as well posting with their alt accounts in one thread and my report was excluded as those posts still exist.

Ofcourse they are alts, they will probably be banned even if one of the accounts was spamming.
They even registered to the same campaign together in a span of half hour, and that to in the same fashion, which was not how they were supposed to register for it(They just asked can I join) .

+1. Probably they are alts of the same user; but, I don't think he was using a bot there. However, it's really annoying to see in service threads people not posting data as required by OP...all due to newbies being overcome by their greed for a few satoshis!  Angry

I've been in various sig campaigns, on and off, and I've also caught the odd temporary ban. The bans I got I also deserved, basically they happened because I was drunk and being either nonsensical or threatening. Basically drunk stuff... Lesson learned!
The thing about people who post one word replies, stuff like "lol right" or just an emoji is; they are really cheating themselves. If the only thing you ever had to say was "lol" in conversation you would find pretty quick that no one wants to talk to you. Same principal works here. It's a conversation not a graffiti wall, give and take.
As for the mods and their decisions...it's their party. They can kick anyone they like, for whatever reason, but they tend to stick to the rules when deciding.
Bitcointalk is a public place, it takes all types. When someone has nothing to say yet insists on saying it anyway, just ignore them and move on. Part of the "art" of conversation is the etiquette. If others have none that doesn't mean you should drop yours as well. Rise above.

(I'm really surprised at how much trouble people have with this!)

everyone can be banned if they are spamming, moderator bans spammers not signature campaign users, if a user spam without any signature campaign then he will also get banned.mostly user with signature ads is banned because they do more spamming to increase their post counts

I dont know about that, a while ago there were no sig campaigns and i remember with an old account of mine that many of my posts were deleted by mods like 10 posts in a week and i was never banned, ive never heard about anyone getting banned in that time either

I have recently noticed that mostly trolls get banned or those who use alt accounts to spam the forum. I have not noticed members who spam with just one account getting banned. It may be because their posts aren't reported or their off topic posts are ignored. Posts like "+1" or "one word replies" are deleted and non signature members probably don't get banned for this reason if they don't have similar posts.

Well i havent seen anyone posting +1 or one word replies honestly i dont think anyone does that, definitely not the sig campaign participants, most of them that get banned and come here and you look at their history, their posts are long sometimes but just senseless

I think the spammers who post long replies that are completely useless are worse than the short reply spammers. I can not stand a long wall of useless text...
