Figured I'd create a thread for reporting spambots which may be missed as I just found one:

Thanks Trent - spotted that one this morning - seems to have sneaked under the radar! :)

It certainly was a hard one to spot, looked like a normal post on first look, had to do a double take before realising it was a bot!

No, he was a legitimate poster who, for some reason, decided to go and edit his 2 year old posts and replace what he wrote with "Ba"

I've removed the link from that one as I think the post itself is reasonably amusing given the context of the thread. Feel free to purge it anyway shane if you'd like.

Sbonc'd both but Robert1122 probably needs deleting also.
