Mel and me already sorted this one out earlier today :)

Perhaps useful to know for others too, as I don't think everyone is aware of it. Using the 'flag as spam' button is BY FAR the most effective form to deal with this stuff. First of all, if a user has two outstanding spam flags, they can't post, so this helps stop spammers right in their tracks (it actually works better than deleting the posts :) ).

Secondly, when something is flagged as spam, it gets added to a page that we regularly check with outstanding spam flags, which means that it's quick and easy for moderators and admin to see a whole chain of spam or isolated posts.

If someone rubs you the wrong way for a long time, feel free to use the PM buttons but I think things go faster the first way (and let's face it, that's why the 'flag as spam' button was created )
