Actually I’m way ahead of you — I deleted that user a couple of days ago when *I* got spam from them! Sorry for the inconvenience. Our spam user prevention plugins (Akismet and WangGuard especially) were working wonderfully for a time, but I’ve seen a major uptick in spam users in the last couple of months: time to try out some new ones and some new settings.
One of my campers for THATCamp Marshall received a spam email (please see pasted below):
