Can you please include the username when reporting spammers. That message has been deleted so we have no idea which user to get rid of. (Moderators can delete posts but only Administrators can delete users).

Agree in principle, but in this case you have the information you need.

blekutak's post is removed, we just need admin to get rid of him/her/it now.
Hmm, who wants to bet that senteleng, who signed up at exactly the same time, is of the same ilk?

It looks suspicious, but as they haven't posted any spam yet, I'm deactivated the account rather than deleting it. If they complain about not being able to login, we'll know our judgement was rather harsh.

Alex01uk - can't make up my mind if its spam or not. Whatever - its repeated over and over again for no good reason. Link in the sig seems spurious as well:
