What is the point of spambots that post like this? Annoying as the regular spambots are, at least those I understand what they are trying to accomplish (dupe a few suckers into clicking on their nefarious link). But really, what does this achieve for whoever is behind this bot???

I posted a link on the road once.

It was amazing.

I don't care if it is spam; traffic is traffic.

Is there a Greenbook for gays? I'm worried about Bill out on the road.

The goal is everyone will look at their profile wondering who this guy is, and he has a link in his profile to some spam site. If it's a bot it's basically zero cost/effort to post so even a clickthrough rate of .00000001% over hundreds of thousands of sites (phpbb has millions of forums across the web) is probably profitable.

And this sort of thing stays up longer. I read the post yesterday and went 'oh wow, we have a new poster how weird', and then 'Yadi had a HR derby during corona? weird' but i didn't automatically delete the post and block the account like I would have it were more blatant.
