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.

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 Very Happy

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.
