I think we have wiped these guys out. A number of spam accounts were created back in September from a Kansas IP address. Sadly I think a lot of these are done manually and those are hard to stop until they actually start up.

Thanks for the tip.

It seems he is selling the UGG products from Austrailia, I have seen in our advertising sidebars.
