Welcome Yanehi. Tell us a little bit more about your self. What kind of bike(s) do you have and where do you ride?

Stuff in his (her?) profile is gobbledy-gook. Most likely a spammer.

It will be interesting to find out. On some boards I fill in the blanks with odd things too

It's looking a lot like a spammer to me. Stopforumspam.com comes up with two hits on "Yanehi," both using the same TCP/IP address. From there, the address (2.40.17.189 - Italy) has 19 hits. Unfortunately, I can't access the member records to see what the address is for 'our' Yanehi; so it's not solid enough evidence to pre-emptively ban him, but it's certainly suspicious.

I moderate on a couple of other forums, haven't seen that IP come across yet with that name. This is the first forum I have seen the name on.

Twenty-one hits is a small-time operator. The last one that tried to get into the forum I moderate had 500 entries on his current IP alone, with several dozen names, all similar.

You'll notice 'he' hasn't been back yet to defend himself, either.

Spammer status is confirmed. Closing this thread and banning OP.
