Well I know that curiosity supposedly killed the cat but what possible motivation
is there for "profile spam" ? Is it ever seen?
Human nature is inherently interesting but surely Forum users dont spend their time trawling through user profiles ?
As for the forum Staff / Moderators, it seems to be a thankless task but my observataions suggest its one you manage with some determination... Well done.

Is there any assistance a casual user can offer or alternatively is there any resource such as nolinkfollow which may make the forum less of an atrractive host for SPAM?

Keep up the good work anyhow, Im sure one day you will receive a just reward for your efforts.
