We should create a graveyard thread (admin post only) to post the strangest/weirdest spam messages we've gotten.

Just fyi I had a person with no posts sending me links to ebay listings. I reported them and deleted the PM.
Might want to keep an eye out for PM spam.

Usually said people start like this, then (say) add a signature and modify their profile so that it contains spam links.

There were tons of these x months ago, old accounts with spam links in their sigs.
Are these still to be deleted if one finds them in the memberslist and report them here?

Very true, but we should not jump to conclusions, it may just be someone with limited language skills.

That being said I have seen before were a spammer makes a lot of small posts like this then mas edits them all to include spam. or adds spam to there signature or profile. Its more common then one may think.

I would say: yes.

Well, here's one from 2003 lol, I doubt it's his personal homepage (though perhaps it is legit, one can never be absolutely certain).
There are lots of users with 0 post count but many seem to have legit links.

I'm still looking lol

edit:
Here's a couple more odd ones, dunno if these are truly spam or harmless (but they look a bit odd).
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=36337 (link in sig with only a couiple minutes active on account, 0 postcount)
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=31740 (dunno what hologram he refers to but the youtube link is deleted (might'be been removed as spam from there, but another link remains in the sig).
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=36008
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8789

It seems to actually be pretty clean, I expected to find more lol

User samquinto14 is clearly "spamming".
Can one of the administrators please delete his account and remove any posts linked to this member?
