    Not sure exactly where to post this so thought i'd put it here for now, if @Brogan has a better place for it, feel free to move as necessary.

    I've just had the following user flagged on the community I manage http://forum.hivemc.com/members/xenforo.142569/ (yes it's a Minecraft community) posting threads with the following content:

    That is then followed by an exact copy of the current XenForo license agreement.

    The user has registered from what appears to be a home IP address in the UK, using a Gmail address: xenforocompany@gmail.com

    I assume this is some sort of fake/troll attempt, and I'd be interested to see if any other communities have seen this.

    As you have surmised, you can safely ignore that as it's just a spammer/fake.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Cheers Brogan.

    No idea what the intention of it was, but thought it best to confirm with you guys and alert other communities.
