What's the harm? Spam scientific fact all day long as far as I care.

We suspect him of nefarious intent.

You will notice, though, that we've not revoked his site membership.

Her's using a bot, to start with. If you Google

"each batch of images that rolls in from New Horizons" "inetryconydot"

you'll find 478 hits and rising. This is not the behaviour of a benign seeker after truth.

I see no harm in spreading truth though, via bot or any other method. By your definition, school books are spam. Well, many actually are, but you get my point.

As I say, the account's not banned. All I've done is flagged up the background. Normally I'd do it in Moderator Space but this time was potentially amusing.

I understand. I just think the technology is made positive when used this way.

Well, it has yet to actually offer up anything unique or of any true scientific value. A mere repeat of a statement of observation which was recently posted as a headline in a popular science-oriented rag.

Never thought you to be a champion of SPAM.
