Not strictly an adbot, but all they've posted is "meow."

That's just a spammer; they should be reported in the appropriate megathread in the future. Colleague has already handled this, otherwise.

Is this an ad? The content seems tangentially related, but the only link in there leads to a site where you can hire people to write papers for you.

This account's signature links to a real life Indian (maybe? Or Pakistani?) online store selling real life fruits and vegetables (I was silly enough to fall for it by clicking the link... I thought it would redirect me to a NationStates storefront...)

I'm not sure how useful an online fruit and vegetable market would be. Either way, he's been thrown into the sun.

Yohannes, this thread is definitely a case of "Less is More". We want the member profile, and ONLY the member profile. We don't want links to the thread, and we definitely do not want quotes of the content. You're doing their advertising for them, even though you redacted parts of it.

Member profile links only, please.

Another one of those 'replies to a thread' adspammers.
