I kicked him out.
The link wasn't totally inappropriate even if it was about RC instead of static modelling but the IP-nr was listed as a source of spam and attacks.
The chosen name didn't match the e-mail and the chosen name lives in Texas but the IP was in Tampa, Fla.

So is he offering help quitting smoking or selling cigarettes? He's sending mixed signals.

Well, he ain't sending no signals at all anymore. I sent him a very clear signal ....

Someone must be desperate trying to sell kilts.
That kind of marketing doesn't exactly inspire confidence ...

Not sure about this guy. Frames could be used to pretty up a diorama base but all he's done is to upload pictures to the gallery. Smacks of SEO.

Your instincts were right again.
IP-nr and frameusa10(at)gmail.com turns up dirty in spam-databases.
IP-nr is located in India despite the users claim of USA.
Terminated ....

Robin, you forgot “rub out”! Here’s to “rubbing more of them out” in the coming year.
Happy New Year!

Thanks Gary,
I will monitor. The location of the IP-nr matches the selected state (spammers usually claim Alabama since they can't be bothered with making an active choice).
