Allowable Spam?

A couple of days ago I spotted the first edit by a new user - a change to their user page - and popped in to welcome them, as is my wont. What I found made me hold back because it seems to be manual spam (See for yourselves), and I don't think we want that on the site. I've just posted a guarded welcome on the talk page but I thought I ought to post notice here that I intend to delete that link from the user's page if no more detail is forthcoming. I know editing user pages is considered pretty close to taboo but I don't think we want users called drug-fan, phone-fan and pr0n-fan creating, do we? If there's a strong negative reaction to my suggestion then I will of course desist, but otherwise I will delete the link two days from now. Please let me have your opinions. --RpehTCE 17:45, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

That's spam. I deleted the link. My guess is that was a trial baloon. --Wrye 19:59, 1 November 2007 (EDT)
