Both of these do have spam links, BTW --- in their signatures rather than the bodies of their posts.


Yes, that was also something I said in my post (I've copied the specific section above). :P

Also, even if the posts were deleted, those spam links would remain on the site on the users' profile pages - do the admins have the ability to remove the links from those?

Obvious spam in a reply to an existing thread: new user's first post; generic, badly-written text ("thank you for your idea.i realy like it"); followed by a contextless link.
