Yeah, just realized that after I posted.
PS. visard_sali - this thread is to identify spam. You can report problems through the Help & Support link or create a new thread in the relevant category.
I was going to start using that technique to identify profiles with profanity in them, but the mods still haven't actioned one of my big lists that I found with my old technique - it's the weekend, so I was going to wait a few more days and if nothing had happened was going to maybe put that list into there, even though it's not "spam" as such.
Add "compensation" to my earlier word search list. I always find it interesting how searching on one term gives you clues on other terms to search for.
I also wonder if the mods should make you and I mods too, and we could just delete this stuff instead of troubling them about it. Do we need to demonstrate a level of trustworthiness over time or something? ;)
specialist (lot of valid entries to sift through to find the spam):
http://www.chess.com/members/view/fthapopo22 (old account, many games, big pro-marijuana spiel in the profile)
betting (doesn't help that there's a group called "Sports betting and lotto"):
http://www.chess.com/members/view/xdatenorge6 (according to Google translate)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/clairebear96 (sounds like an actual person, was upfront about looking for a boyfriend, either found one or realised that it wasn't going to happen through chess.com...)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/cdatinguk8 (I feel like I've reported that already, but it may be just a variant or additional sock puppet account)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/ekontaktnorge4 (another one using profile pics from the animated movie - Johnny Neutron?)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/idejtingnorge2 (Google translate is your friend)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/edatinguk1 (yep, definitely sock puppets)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/mdejtingnorge7 (another on loneliness, etc in Norwegian, although the account says it's Polish)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/lovedatingbir3 (might have repored this - I remember the profile pic. Could also be another sock puppet account)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/bdatingnorge8 (not even going to bother putting that into Google translate)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/annonsernorge6 (Jimmy Neutron!)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/williamswherley7 (also using a robotic themed profile pic. Description in Polish this time)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/prestashop (same wolf avatar pic as one of the dating ones, text also in Polish, but not about loneliness. Still spam, though)

http://www.chess.com/members/view/selfstorageinc (that one IS self evident)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/bomb7grip (hmm... I'd classify that as spam. Not sure if the mods will)
Whew! I think some of these must be about search engine optimization, since the more pages that link back to your page, the higher your site appears, yeah?
W O W !
This looks like one BIG! SPAM THREAD
You're new here, posting like a long-time member. Don't you think you're "spam" (or come-backer!) too?
Just cos your an Oldie don't think you can talk to everyone the way you want ? and get away with it! I will keep you in check Sonny
You can't hide your own behaviour. I'm not sure who you are, or if my suspicions are correct, but definitely no "normal" member is so familiar with everything on the site and stuff like this.

(Posted by http://www.chess.com/members/view/Scala, but I don't think this account spams now...)
http://www.chess.com/blog/Maurieternauta/live-on-contatto-radio-in-streaming(not sure about person who posted it...)
http://www.chess.com/blog/ILLYRIA/coverup-in-the-lil-tiger-woods-gatorade-cartoon-commercial-isnt-the-gopher-brent-mussberger(The person who posted this probably isn't a spammer?)
I missed this:
Not so sure...
What is your basis? He is a new member, and has not posted anywhere (quite usual), and has not had time to play any games....yet.
Your own suspicious behaviour can't be hidden!
I'm not even trying to hide 'em.
Ok, now we should stop discussing it here. It's a spam forum, not a chat room
You started the suspicious stuff and I am just finishing it regardless of where it takes place.
And using that Method is just how Einstein managed to split the Atom
let that be a FREE! lesson "Persistent's is BEST!"
Yes, have fun with your life. Or whatever.
Anyone can do it - I quite enjoy it, actually, it ties in well with my slight OCD sense of orderliness, justice and exploration But you do want to check each link and make sure, and be open about when you're not certain. Sometimes with those ones I won't bother, especially if there's plenty of other more obvious ones that should get turfed...
lottery - yes, you can beat the system! All the same pic and (I think) loooong description
http://www.chess.com/members/view/Alfred638 (sounds like a dating site profile)
http://www.chess.com/members/view/gamingmillions (strange no - no spam in the profile itself, just an odd sounding handle)
