took some precautions for them not to post anymore. although I doubt that it will prevent them from posting again.

been looking at sir wheelee's post.  either it's an organized marketing person or a really good bot.
will verify first if this is a bot before blocking future posts.

I just installed Honeypot. Let's see if it helps block these spammers.
