Users with "Memory cards" in their sig...

What's up with that? Is it a bad attempt at advertising? Were they trying to link to something? Are they even human at all?

I've seen a few in the past, and two today... both users have low post counts and both posts look like copy/paste jobs, and since they're not technically breaking any rules the users haven't been banned... but it's still mighty suspicious.

Two I noticed today:

I've noticed 5 such users in last one week. I think they could be some kind of bots. But can't say for sure and can't ban them until there are some serious rules broken. Typing memory cards in the sig is not exactly a crime

They're bots. Maybe they're trying out subliminal advertising.

The links are broken and I can't find the people so I'm a little confused.
