As someone who have managed signature campaigns, I noticed someone using a weird way to post repetitive stuff and go unnoticed.

Modus operandi:
1. Copy the contents of a previous post (made in the a previous signature period) made by him, and edit it to something irrelevant.
2. Make a new post with the same old content.

Example: (reported) (archived)

#1
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1159221.msg14849656#msg14849656
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1159221.msg14916165#msg14916165

#2 (same poster)
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1398787.msg14849677%23msg14849677
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1398787.msg14925812%23msg14925812

#3 and so on.. from here : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=106419;sa=showPosts;start=40 (This guy is probably still hard at work  Shocked)

Notes:
A manager or a bot looking at the posts for the current period will find it hard to find this abuse. In threads with more than a few pages, it becomes significantly harder to spot.

handled, thanks. feel free to report any other cases, or post in this topic (or both!).

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
