I'm going to give this thread the benefit of the doubt and assume it is not a spam bot or spam posting -

What screen name are you trying to recover the password for? Do you remember what email address you signed up with?

but if even one of them is a newbie fan

(and technically the Romanian IP might be a NAT,
for a network that reaches Norway,
or it might be a Norwegian living in Romania.
(who wants those Arctic Circle winters?))

yeah, i wouldn't bet on these odds,
but n00bies can be strange around here ; - }

but there is still doubt, even if the user name is the same

this thread also serves as a reminder,
that the mods here,
will try and help you reset your password

sboxers who have been away for a while,
may have forgotten the one they used

Of course it's a bot... 
There is no REASONABLE doubt, but as long as it's not posting anything else, where's the harm?

essevyzor is a googlewhack.  Just sayin'.

Don't think he/she/it is a Google+whack, though, but I could be wrong.

Everything about that bot says, "Hi, I'm a bot!"

Screw benefit of the doubt in the face of overwhelming evidence. Here's hoping the admins finish doing what they're doing to resolve this spam invasion.

the usual test for deletion
is that the newbie posts links
either in it's posts
or in it's profile
that are spam

this bot has yet to meet that test



i too hope the admins soon resolve the issues,
that prevent better automatic spam prevention
