the interesting (sometimes troubling) part to me at this point is that if they keep it low key, i can't tell if they're legit or not.
a resume service that helps vets or anyone else, for that mattter, i'm all for that, but if all they're here for is to sloppily promote their business, then they need to go elsewhere.

Meh. If they are real, they can always use the contact us form on the website and plead their case. I haven't seen a single new registrant with a legit small business use that feature in years. Great way to weed out spammers.

mickel5435769 likes manga, which is not in and of itself a problem, but selling it is clearly the only reason he came here.

Also, if you're going to quote them, please break the link so others don't get suckered in.

Hmm. They have started trying a new method of putting their spam in the signature rather than the website. Just edited global new user permissions to not let them do that. We'll see if that helps.

for awhile they were doing both sig and website. i look at both.

Website is easily viewable in the member view, sorted that way. Sig requires one to look at each individual profile. Ah well, it was too easy the other way.

Ever thought of using robots.txt to tell search engines not to index profile pages? Cut off the thing that spammers really want.

Not sure if that would help with them registering or not.
