You may want to check if you have a registered user on your site who's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (or a variation thereof). On at least two Geeklog sites (including geeklog.net) that user has suddenly started posting comment spam (for drugs and pills) after the account lay dormant for a year or longer. The oldest accounts found so far date back to August 2004.
Account names differ but follow a pattern: 9NoraRebecca, 3BillAlika, 7FlossieOma, 9AlmaNoguri
We suggest that you delete or at least ban that user (banning a user is only supported as of Geeklog 1.4.0). If you find any interesting variation of the above patterns and suspect it's the same user, feel free to email us[*1] and send us the details.
