Don't think we've gotten any of those yet, Alrik.

The big wave right now is putting up fake home pages. They set up a fake website (or sometimes a dummy account on a legit site that doesn't catch them) and list that forum user ID as their home page. The home page link appears legit, but if you click on it you find their "bio" is the spam. It's more time-consuming to police those since you've got to follow the link to see what's there, so most sites won't bother. Plus, they get a pageview just from mods checking them out, which makes their campaign appear more successful. Tricksy, they is, very tricksy.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
