Yup! I'd already spotted him but he/she seems innocuous (so far....)

We do get the occasional spammer, usually just promoting a web-site in the "signature". I don't know about the other moderators, but I only delete them when I'm in a bad mood! Changing the forum registration procedure to ask a real question ("Where are Granvias manufactured?") rather than re-typing a character string (CAPTCHAs) does seem to have blocked the flood of spammers we had a couple of years ago.
