I'm not sure if you are aware but a lot of spam accounts are joining the forum just to get profile backlinks

Some recent examples:



Edit:

Those 3 accounts were just examples, there are countless more.


My suggestion would be locking profile editing behind a certain number of posts

Thanks for reporting this. We have spam filters active and a lot of accounts that slip through the net are manually rejected by the CT.

I know that the profile links are nofollow, so there is no harm for us, nor benefit for them, to be joining just for backlinks on the profile section - only posts which are heavily moderated generally anyway
