Not sure.  I can't see the IP addresses, but I figured rather than spending time trying to distinguish spam from non-spam, I'd just throw all these random posts from new users in here and be done with it.

The fact that they all have 1 post is the big tip-off for me.

Seriously, how can you come to this board and only post once?
