Spam PM's from Stromeur 650

I have been sent a spam PM from Stromeur 650.
I don't appreciate it and I don't believe that this sort of activity should be condoned within this forum.

It's a slightly different situation.
The person who sent the PM has posted nearly 100 times on the forum and has suddenly decided to inflict their wealth creation scheme or whatever it was on others.
I'd like to see an apology.

Its a bot, there is no shocker, there are programs that register themselves and then get the userlist and spam away. They are evil, but effective. Best thing to do is ignore the user and let the admins do their duty.

The PM came from a user who has legitimately posted nearly 100 times in various threads on this forum. It included the users normal signature.
I do not believe it was sent from an automated bot because if it was security on this site must have been breached so badly that mealy posting here will is dangerous (I stress again I do not believe that to be the case)
