Hey,

It's a relatively common tactic. I recommend that no one click the links [pop].

I did, responded to the PM too (said hi and all that). However, I did not click on the link. To be honest I did not notice the link...

Apparently I read it after he was Banned... figured I'd use my search-engine-fu and I found this thread. I've never seen spam in a PM on a message board like this but there is a first time for all things.

I got it too, not until after he was banned. Struck me as strange and.... random.

It's actually fairly common. It's a way that spammers try to get their spam links out there and stay under the radar of the admins and moderators, whom they carefully try to avoid PMing.
