Yeah may need to ban these users to stop this, sadly…

If we re-force activation, that seems to stop it without banning the underlying accounts (unless I misunderstand and this has happened twice for the VeeGee account specifically and I just didn't see it)

I'm almost sure this is the second time with that specific account; I believe was the other time, though it's possible I may misremember that

If that is the case (it might be!), The REAL explanation for why they were able to do it twice was not that we needed to ban them entirely rather than merely force re-activation but that we forgot to force re-activation. I don't see any evidence of any user who has been logged as forced re-activation who reappears to spam again.

Lol, a bit bizarre, but also that is some of the most AI-sounding text I've ever seen. Tried to run it over some random AI detector and it agrees

Pretty sure this is a spammer, their other posts in other threads are just totally generic and clueless, even the one trying to /in lacks needed context of being a newbie or not:
