    Hi,

    Sorry if this seems out of left field.

    I run a blog site, and a spammer posted a comment today that appears to be a link to a member profile on these forums, but they've managed to exploit something in vBulletin to redirect their profile to a spam site.

    At any rate, the profile link is here:
    discussion.treocentral.com/member.php?u=144380

    Thought an admin might want to know.

    Ok, so we've become effective enough at stopping people from spamming our forums that they're now putting their spam links in their signatures and then using their forum profile as a way to spam wordpress blogs.

    In other words, they're gone from trying to spam us directly to using us as a virtual home base for spam, and if we get put into various spam databases, well then they don't really care, do they?

    I am very angry about this. Working on it.
