Greetings and Salutations. Not sure if this is best place to put this, but I was curious if these are bots or just some really odd posters.

I've noticed in a couple of threads there would be a new post, and it would be a quote of one of my posts (but only part of it, and no quote code or additional content as if a response). I'm guessing they're bots (especially with only 1 post each), in some odd way of trying to not look like bots, but I'm not familiar with this one and wanted to ask instead of reporting (in case they're legitimate posters by some chance).

A couple threads as an example:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=178328&p=3097112#p3097112 (my post is right above the last one).

viewtopic.php?f=39&t=156222&p=3096807#p3096807 (this one was locked as a Necro, but what was posted was part of one of my earlier posts in that thread and the one The Beast is quoting a few posts before the Necro).

Anyway, just wanted to bring it to someone's attention. Farewell and safe journeys.

You have stalkers. :P

Comment: Being a moderator doesn't mean I speak for Palladium Books. It just makes me the lifeguard at their pool.
Looks like a new round in the eternal struggle.

Please report the posts as you find them so we can clean them up.
