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.

Aha! I never even considered the forum search. I leaned too much on Big Google. 😂

I supppose as spam goes, it's maybe better than weird ads or just gibberfish.

I wonder how often Kodokami laughs at my weird reports.

They actually based that Gundam series on Kodokami and I deleting spam threads.

As a mod, nothing annoys me more. There are multiple a day over on r/chronotrigger and its exhausting dealing with them, and increasing the spam filter only helps a little, but requires even more work because it catches a ton of non-spam posts that then have to be manually approved.

New spam deletion style:

 :lol:

Sometimes, I'll catch spam before anyone else and hesitate deleting it right away, because Mauron's comments in the reports are so amusing.

But yeah, the spam sucks. Not even sure how they keep getting in. The worst (which we thankfully haven't had in a while), are the ones that create enough spam to fill several pages worth.

I didn't know the subreddit had so much spam, so I guess that shows you're doing a great job, Boo!

And here I thought I was helping out! :P

For those not reading the reports, here's the details of the last one:

Spam: garbage text and the word "Luminous"
Report: this spam of mine glows with random characters!

Too bad it's not something that can be dealt with permanently.

Also, nice, G Gundam reference.

I lol'd at this thread again this morning.

I freaking love you all. If I could collectively marry the Compendium and those in it (well, most of ya'll), I'm pretty sure I would.

Just don't tell my wife.
