Sudden surge of people in the "Overkill codes".

So I don't visit the MMO codes section at all, but saw the Overkill thread had a link to it, so I looked at it, and it seems like there's around 100 people in there that have "0" post and joined in March 2011.

Are these real people or does someone have a bot running?

Thx for any info regarding this.

Definitely not bots because the codes they are posting are different. Overkill is gaining popularity quickly so im not surprised that thread is getting a lot of responses from new members. The codes work similarly to mafia wars type games so people join just so they can post their code. No need to be alarmed.

I'm also pretty sure that people don't gain posts from posting in that section.
So chances are they googled for some codes, found the thread and joined to get their code out there.
