That was my interpretation as well. Seductive was a silent member since July. That's a long time to lie in wait just to submit a spam.

It's not uncommon for a spammer on the Yahoo!Groups (where I moderate a few Prius lists) to sit unnoticed for a long time (usually scraping email addresses from getting the messages delivered by mail), before they start attempting to post (or more common, fill the links or files section with junk).

I figured maybe the same thing going on here... or one of the leftover spammers from the last time the site was cracked...

Why? Was it confirmed (through non-public communications) that he indeed was spamming, and not just commenting on the thread? The post did fit the context.

IIRC, the post was kinda on topic, but contained a link to probable spam (it was suspicious enough that I didn't follow it). This technique is used to get the targeted site better ratings on Google (essentially our Google rating contributes to the target site's rating).
