Don't worry --  a few mouse-clicks later, the spammer is gone along with all their messages and topics!

Lately, most of them don't even bother posting any more.  They just want to sign up for an account, and put a bunch of spam-related links in their member profile (so web-crawlers like the spider programs employed by Google will see more instances of those links, and thus rank them higher in searches -- that's what SEO is all about) and then move on.  It's been a while since we had somebody actually go nuts posting pharma links and stuff.

Anyway, thanks for reporting these. APK banned them, I deleted the account and all their posts and topics, then banned the rest of the usual overnight SEO/spammer signups, and we're back to normal.
