It's okay. What we do when people spam like this is that we remove all the links from their posts and lock their user.

Then they have planted tonnes of keyphrase-rich material in OUR website, but none of it points to them. That way they end up competing against their own marketing in future, making it harder for themselves to sell anything...and we inherit all the visitors they drum up.

Which is nice...

Spam used to be so annoying. 100 e-mails a day from porn sites and asking if I want viagra lol.

Gmail and hotmail now have spam filters and I don't get any which is awesome :-D.
