This looks like pagerank spam: http://www.nzrag.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=436

(ie: an off-topic but plausible question designed to elicit responses, with a bunch of links in the signature)

Suggest you ban the user, delete the post, and maybe look at the IP it came from..

The post has been deleted, if another should appear we will also block the isp but for now hopefully just deleting it will discourage the spammer.

Given the increasing frequency of spam posts by guests, I'm inclined to agree with the people who have been suggesting guest posting be removed.

As one of those slackers who often posts without logging in... even I'm tending towards shutting down that capability. Sad

OKay when i get home tonight i shall discuss the issue with Squee, and see what he thinks. Though i imagine that he will be more than happy to do this, as both he and myself are getting sick of deleting spam posts.
