Ah, you are right!

Not that 35+ people don't like anime. But I have yet to see a spammer put their age at 13-20.

Yeah, I gotcha. Seems like it's possible that this batch was used on a more adult-oriented forum.

Another thing I noticed about these spammers...

Along with usually putting there ages at 30+, they also put the date of their birthday somewhere in the near future. For example, a spammer that creates an account today will set their birthday on April 10.

This makes sense. The more thier name pops up, the more chance of someone to click on a link. Therefor, even if they are banned, as long as they will not be removed from the roster, this is a way to give themselves one more chance in the near future. Rather smart if you think about it.

Well there have been a few that have tried to sneek in to the video gaming and intros, but it might be because they they think they can blend in here.

I've also seen them sneak into Merchandising. But still, a majority of the spam is in Insanity. Perhaps they think they can get away with links and poor grammar in Insanity.
