The inserted link is related to BBC Micro software, so might even be in some kind of good faith. But I agree, it should be removed as it's obviously not a link to BBC Micro community site.


And done...

Sorry I'm late to reply here; wanted to say that I check new users on a daily basis. Most of the times I catch spammers before posting any crap, sometimes (especially during the weekend) some spam may get through, but it will get cleaned up a bit later. It's very rare that I will miss something altogether, since what I do is check the site's RSS for changes - so nothing gets past.
