This thread is promoting a gear manufacturer. The link to the manufacturer's website both in the thread and in the posters profile makes me think he is affiliated with the manufacturer.

Looks like the latest spam trick is to create a fake user id and load it up with commercial links. Are you guys working on a way to catch or block these automatically? Perhaps any new profile with more thn 3 links in it should be flagged...

I'm not aware of them working on this. I won't kill this avatar until Josh, Ryle or Matt have a look.

This is at least the 3rd user profile I've seen like this one, which is littered with commercial links... (The others were reported already.)

I've also deleted a few the last couple of months. But your previous post made me realize that the owners and Matt should be aware of the problem, if they aren't already.

Here's another profile loaded with commerical links. The links look like they might be porn.
