As many of you already know, I am the resident spam hunter here on Know Your Meme. But I may not always be around to do this job, so I present to you this guide on how to identify and ki- I mean mark those damn spambots.
Spambots are NOT smart as they are just computer programs. The people who coded the spambot programs have a similar level of intelligence to their creations.
For an avatar, the common spambot will do one of three things Defualt, use a stock photo of a person, or a stock photo of what they are trying to sell you (or maybe something completely freaking unrelated).
This is what the laziest of lazy spambots do.
This is Know Your Meme’s default avatar. But you most likely already knew that.
Stock Photo: Person
The spambots that do this are a bit smarter than the others, but that is not saying much.
Two examples of stock photo people used by spambots. Note the professional look of the photography.
Stock Photo: Random
On other occasions, the spam bot will upload an image realted to what the are trying to get you to buy.
Flowers. How lovely. You are still a spambot. Die.
Identification By Name:
Spambots tend to be less than creative with their names.
Spambot Names: Type 1
Common generic names. Overly generic, in fact.
Spambot Names: Type 2
The name then number type. Not a spambot exclusive as many real people do this. Not a good source of examples.
Spambot Names: Type 3
Nearly any user with “host” or “gator” in their names.
Spambot Names: Type 4
Some spambots use names related to what they are trying to “sell” you.
Identification By Actions:
A favorite passtime of spambots is the great and tedious effort that they put into the “About:” section of their userpage in an attempt to fool you into thinking that they are, in fact, human. As you have probably surmised, the spambots are not in fact human. This can be seen with the complete copypasta’d rambling gibberish that addorns their userpages.

These incoherent ravings usually contain the link to what they are trying to sell to you. And by sell to you I mean take your credit card information.
Other times, the spambots just forgo the description and nicely line up their links, for all the world to see.
One more thing, the common spambot will usually upload the image that they use on their profile to the Know Your Meme image stream.
Very rarely will spambots actually post their spam in comments, entries, or forum posts. Not very common, but it does happen.
Spambots sometimes get stuck, as demonstrated by this image and the six Mark Lindens.
So, yeah. Passing on my knowledge. But I am not leaving KYM, do not worry. Just letting others help, in this hopeless and never ending battle.
