COMMENTS
All terms are even. The sequence is infinite. E.g., positive terms of A173121 {48, 288, 960, 2400, 5040, 9408, 16128, 25920, 39600,...} is infinite subsequence of A218486. - Zak Seidov, Nov 26 2013
Another infinite subsequence is {96, 480, 1440, 3360, 6720, 12096, 20160, ...} = 96 *binomial(m,4) = 96*(positive terms in A000332). - Zak Seidov, Nov 26 2013
