He/she/it is gone, although a spammer that gives their address as Sesame Street at least has a sense of humour.

Oh yes, sneaky. Post deleted, now the poster just needs to be dealt with.
Makes a change from the "Make amusing post, age for one week, edit to add link" procedure, I suppose.

Yes, also, did you spot the hidden link? Forced link text to black using tags. Post deleted, now the user needs to go.

Was it the nonsensical wordpress reference at the end? What's that point of making a link look like normal text. Isn't the point to make the reader aware that it's a link? Crazy spammers :D

Indeed it was. I suppose the purpose of putting the link where it would not normally be seen is simply to improve web search rankings by making it another page providing a link.
