http://www.linuxformat.com/forums/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=??????

looks suspicious to me, just joined and posting vague 1 line replies to a number of old threads.

I could be wrong but.....

Edited to remove the link. It looks like someone deleted the user I was suspicious about, but the next person to sign up has then aquired the same user ID, therefore the link I supplied now points to a legitimate user!

That's why you should supply usernames and topic links rather than profile links in spam reports, user IDs are recycled to save electrons.

The podcast pages have been spammed. Have a look at the comments:

This will need a site admin to deal with it, forum moderators have no power there. Given the nature of previous events of this kind, I wouldn't be surprised if more comment threads than just that one have had the same treatment.

Gone now. You see, this is what happens when our overlords don't disable a user the first time he's reported (yes, this spammer has done this before).
