blog-comment spam's cousin?

I've been noticing a new trend on our forums lately, and it seems closely related to blog-comment spam: fake registration on our forums listing questionable Home pages in profile. Is this some attempt to get search engine ranking, like with comment spam?

Registration for our forums is moderated, so the trend got my attention. Anyone else running into this?

Comments

Yeah, on other forums.

Also, the opposite on my blog: A spammer actually left meaningful comments on my blog. I felt pretty bad... for about a millisecond as I banned & deleted his sorry arse. A for effort.

Actually, now that I remember it, JD was talking about seeing even bogus forums on the Yahoo Groups. Tiz everywhere like "the creep"...
