    Why do the bots spam? Couldnt they do it a bigger forum? What would they get out of a small forum like ours?

    No idea, I made a (empty) forum in 2018 and still can't see any spam. Never seen a thing like this.

    Why should bots care if a forum is big or small? They find an URL, they see it's a forum, they know the forum style (i.e. user registration procedure), they spam away. No brain behind the method.

    In China having a diploma is crucial to get a job, get a flat, or even be accepted in society (check this commercial: )

    So the market for fake diploma is blooming. Most of the spam messages you see are about buying fake dimploma from Universities all over the world. You can check it yourself when you open http://translate.google.com and copy/paste the text there.

    If you mean the people who program a bot to post spam messages ... of course. Once the bot is ready to go it offers "free" commercial (i.e. no money needed for stamps, printings, online ads etc.) for those who ordered it. Either they are paid once the bot is working or the programmers get a fee per "captured customer". Maybe the programmers get 1% per new customer, I don't know. But if in 1.000.000 spam mails (which are, as said, free) only one buys a fake diploma it's already a success.

    No way, I used to delete and reinstall the game several times. The safest way is to delete the account to get rid of an unwanted game.

    More accurately the google account is still there, but the game is on level 1. The question is good, because I had 3 google accounts to play more, and deleted two of them. My goal is to limit the playing time, and stop before losing control. The problem started with Ldoe, then continued with other games.

    I have an annoying problem after playing any video game. The game is still running in my head for some hours. First I thought it is a new problem with new games, and I lost my mind recently. But reading my old diary, I had the same experience 25 years ago as a child. I also read about dizziness, nausea, pain after playing in the diary. Nothing changed.

    I love to eat Oreos. Oreos make my stomach sick. I don’t eat Oreos, ever now. Problem solved.

    Same thing. I used to drink "Fanta™". Fanta made my stomach sick. I don't drink Fanta, ever now. Problem kinda solved.

    I will start an online lecture in basic informatics next week. CSS, Git, Javascript, protocols. If I can do the exam, there will be a possibility to get a new profession with more studying.
