Well, this makes them stick out like a sore thumb, and become easily identified as spammers. Otherwise they'll merely use this forum as their personal means of increasing their page rank by using subtle links.

Hint: I inserted a link into this post, and your average onlooker won't notice it.

If this keeps up, eventually google will start delisting our forum from their search results, like they have done with other forums.
