Advanced spam bot that has been spamming the internet every day for 14 years.
So... there's this infamous spam bot/entity on the internet, which signs up to join new forums just to post about this one asinine topic. The account replies to people but it often repeats exact phrases, word for word like it was all rehearsed. This alias can be found everywhere, in the randomest places, such as political forums, fishing forums, racing car forums, YouTube, Unexplained Mysteries forums, Google+, and more. Sometimes it'll hijack topics to make it all about this very specific and weird topic. It can react to photos and video and accurately identify them.

What's odd and still creeps me out, is that I mentioned the name of the AI/bot on a forum it NEVER visited, along with the actual subject matter (that is, typing the keywords it so often uses in a phrase) and then no joke 5 minutes later it suddenly appeared OUT OF NOWHERE with its sh!tposts! It then threw insults and left. ''Pu*sy'', ''b*got'' and ''d*ldo'' are some of its favorites, even though this alias says they're in their 50's or 60's. The responses can range from a single sentence/emoji to 30 cohesive paragraphs.

The ''arguments'' it gives, if you can even call them that, are ALWAYS circular and it basically loops after it gives 10 or so replies, but it changes things up slightly each time. It also keeps giving links to this ''Access4Less'' website, which doesn't even appear to exist.

One of the forums it has been spamming on has racked up 160 pages worth of content and forum members have actually been arguing with this thing.

It also enjoys pulling articles from the Onion and then making brand new threads just about each article it finds, proclaiming them all as true, much to the annoyance of forum goers. A quick Google search shows it first suddenly appeared in 2004. It's been kicked and banned off of many forums.

A weak point is it cannot understand synonyms (yet). For example if I use a synonym for something they mentioned they'll act very confused, and then say they didn't mention [synonym].

The alias is also fond of 'bait and switch' lately, where it'll post about seemingly innocent topics (or post onto another person's thread and be perfectly on topic with the current discussion subject) and then without any warning suddenly start ranting about this extremely insane bizarre topic. It's last spamming was a few minutes ago. On this one site it signed up on in 2012, it has 17,000 posts. It's nuts!! It is honestly one of the most mysterious things I've came across on the internet since I started browsing it back in 2005. Accidentally ran into this bot recently and it had me fooled for a while but then I noticed slight things which indicate it's a bot and not a real person. I'm about 99% sure it's a bot. I doubt some guys (it refers to itself as two guys, and sometimes even in 3rd person) could spend 14 years of their lives spamming the internet every single day, and all day.

There's footage of these identical twins, who talk about the same subject matter as this bot, and they're also linked to this spam-bot. In the video, they speak in a monotone voice that's slow, almost slurred. They also never blink. It creeped me out.

It kinda reminds me of that ''Tay Tweets'' bot, except this bot suddenly became active in 2004 so I'm wondering what it could be. Were there any advanced AI experiments gone rogue in 2004? I just wanna know WTF this is and who could be responsible for it.

It's most common alias is ''sfseaserpent''.

EDIT I'll also add that if you were to ever ask for evidence to this bot's rehersed claims, it'll either do a 50/50 and throw an insult, or it'll resort to the visual form of 'sh!tposting', such as this, as its ''smoking gun evidence'' - [link to home.access4less.net]

The bot's core program is to spam about the topic of there being magical 200 ft reptilian dragons in the San Francisco Bay that only they can see.

Here's how it responded when I asked it some questions - [link to i66.tinypic.com]

ManFromMars is also one - I wonder if it's the same one?
