I don't imagine there's any logic to it, but jeez, that was a lot of posts to delete. I'm not sure there's anything more I can do on my end, unfortunately.

I would certainly think they don't pay that much attention.

Considering this happened just yesterday with the same thing. As if detecting they got stopped prompted them to try again instead of backing off.

Head to the nearest zoo and toss a typewriter into the monkey cage. You'd get better results.  :P

If I wait long enough, I'll get Shakespeare, and may be accused of plagiarism.... that just won't do. I need another way...

Write something, then run it through multiple languages in Google Translate.

I feel attacked, spammers spamming in my spam thread.

Yeah. It was odd. Seemingly harmless posts, though apparently copied from previous threads or from Reddit, being edited days later by the user to include spams links.

Not sure what to make of Trig's latest posts...

Ah, sometimes it happens that a user, either newly registered or after a long absence, decides to put input on a bunch of posts at the same time. It's a harmless action, I'd say.

Well, Google didn't do well for me either in finding old topics with the same text. I mostly used the forum search. Except for one.
Here are the originals from here I've found that got copied by the spammers, and the year they were originally posted.
A couple Chrono ideas (2010)
Validity of Crimson Echoes Cart (2016)
Lavos Theme Extended? (2017)
Original story idea inspired by Chrono Cross (2010)
A theory about "Time Counciousness" (2007)
I generally haven't been reading everything that's been posted, but recognizing the Lavos theme one was what made me look more closely at the other spam posts.
