I see that, for the first time in a long while, a spammer has got through the forum defences, which means it's highly likely to be a manual spammer rather than a bot, so not too much to worry about. It looks like all the posts have been reported so hopefully they'll be taken care of shortly.
One comment though - as an ex-moderator here, can I just comment that when/if you see one of these spam threads, please report it, but try to refrain from replying to the post in any way or quoting it elsewhere: That just creates more work for the people who've got to clear up the mess afterwards plus it helps achieve some of the spammer's aims, which are usually to get their links promoted up the relevance listings on search engines.
