If it's true that sometimes some admin is removing spam on this site, we might be able to help by listing spam accounts.

Last time I mentioned spam accounts in a thread they were gone shortly afterwards. So we can try again and just see if it helps?

These 3 are the worst at the moment:

http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/encounterfreeboo
http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/polaris22

Luckily, when a user gets deleted, all his "work" is gone, too. Maybe the spammers didn't get that yet.
Love this idea. Will post a few more when I get a chance. Unfortunately, the stuff created by the user (except for maybe forum posts) seems to get left behind when the user is deleted:

polaris22's patterns

EDIT: I think perhaps that the pattern is left behind, but the name and description are stripped? There are 50 pages of spam palettes there, but none of them have spam links that I can find, even when inspecting the source. Either that was a very incompetent bot, or the admins feel there is some need to leave the junk patterns in place when the user is deleted.
I'm happy to see that all three of my first post got deleted. (or deleted themselves?)
This one is writing spam love notes at this moment:

Thanks Rainbowwolf, was about to add him to this list.
I'm tired of these freaking spammer people taking colors and trying to sell stuff on here. It's so pathetic.

This is the current Featured Lover on the Community front page... something like 12500 colours, nothing else, and from the names obviously spam.
I was wondering about Fraya, because I couldn't visit her profile yesterday or before, message was too many redirects. That has happened to legit users before, so I wasn't sure about spam or not.
There was a link left under one of my patterns to a rather racist/discriminating petition site! Shocking!
I can't delete the link?

Well, that sucks. You can report it, with the ! button to the right of the reply button.
And you can report the account name to either this list or the Contact Us menu on the bottom of every page. They will likely delete the account. I hope they delete the comment as well.
I reported this and yes I do hope they delete that comment!
Thank you for advising me!
