    Newbee's with no avatar photo and no normal intro are normally spam bots coming back from being banned.

    Because you're grating on people's nerves. You are as irritating as a nose drip.

    A Spambot.

    A spambot is a program designed to collect, or harvest, e-mail addresses from the Internet in order to build mailing lists for sending unsolicited e-mail, also known as spam. A spambot can gather e-mail addresses from Web sites, newsgroups, special-interest group (SIG) postings, and chat-room conversations.

    it does look like this new member created an avatar for this site

    spambot, was used inappropriately in this instance; what he meant was "sockpuppet" - which is a new user that is really an old user that created a new username to either get around a ban & post anyway OR just generally disrupt the boards and be a nuisance:

    I hope that helps :)

    It's not surprising that a lot of people sign up but don't stick around here.
