Well last time it involved a cavity search, who knows what he'll suggest this time.

Done. The spam's gone too (for now) - one of the pieces from this morning was particularly offensive.

the reason they do this (though you probably all know this) is because the more places they put their url links the higher the google ranking.. I am surprised how many there are though.. I have seen trolls attempting to attack feminist sites but that is usually based more upon them pretending to actually be interested, then flame baiting, than this... good luck getting rid of them!

As can be seen from the latest batch of **** links the poster doesn't seem to be a bot, since this donkey is reacting to what has been posted about him, which means he is reading stuff here.

Also, since the same sort of **** links are being posted (unless I've missed a few) I'd say it is being done by one fool (instead of several different ones) who gets his kicks out of doing this and seeing the fuss he can generate. By creating new user names every day he figures he can keep this up for as long as he wants.

The reason why it matters (i.e. that spam is being posted) is because it trashes our ability to tell when threads have genuine new posts on them, and whether anyone has made a reply to a previous post of our own. Also, a number of people would be genuinely offended by having to be confronted with **** links at a place that should be clear of them; we haven't done anything to this person, but he has made us the target of his attitude. It won't do any good to appeal to his better nature to leave us alone, because he's getting what he wants already and has no reason to change what he's doing.

Perhaps his ISP could be traced and they could take away his ability to go on line.

Perhaps it may become necessary for new members to have to pass some kind of verification of identity or something before being allowed to post here. Is this possible?
