Next. I'm not saying it should be removed already, but I think it's a bot. Profile's personal data filled in, first and only post in a thread that has a current buzzword in the title. I suspect it will come back and place some links in that post.
Hmm, I banned and deleted the post based on the topic. Unbanned for now.

I was expecting this one to do something, but it hasn't yet.

I know it from other forums, the first three posts are checked first before they are published. Wouldn't that be an option here?

...and re-banned.

That would be a question for acseven, but with current volume, I think it's fine the way it is, and I'd generally prefer people with real questions have their posts show up quickly.

https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6208.msg63111#msg63111 was reported

Original post in 2011 was done with a CHDK script, so that's fine.

The two "people" bumping a 10 year old post with generic marginally on topic replies ... *eyes banhammer*

One of "them" has already come back and modified their post.
It looks like another spamming operation has selected this forum as one of their targets. This one is using more real-life usernames instead of generated ones.
Current candidates: https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?action=profile;u=32170 and the one with the translated German post.

Edited post deleted and user banned.


Perhaps we need a time limit on editing of posts (i.e. after X hours/days the posts are locked).

CHDK ports:
  sx30is (1.00c, 1.00h, 1.00l, 1.00n & 1.00p)
  g12 (1.00c, 1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  sx130is (1.01d & 1.01f)
  ixus310hs (1.00a & 1.01a)
  sx40hs (1.00d, 1.00g & 1.00i)
  g1x (1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  g5x (1.00c, 1.01a, 1.01b)

Hm. I admit I like being able to add notes to my technical posts that turned out to be wrong years later.  I suppose mods would still be able to do that.

the one with the translated German post.
Yeah, I think that's the best explanation for that one. Finding and translating a post about the same subject in another language seems like a lot of effort though ???
