You are probably right about that. It's pretty devious technique. It is tough to stay on top of the spammer techniques!

And that was also on a phpBB site.
Oh good idea! Very sneaky. I did a quick sort through and found these, they don't have active posts but do have spam links in their signatures. I'm not able to get rid of users or edit signatures, but if someone else could take care of these:
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=470
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=482
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=687

Good catch! I've banned them all. :)

Thanks for your help!
