Searching on the e-mail adress didn't turn up anything dirty.
The IP-nr is allocated to Shaw Communications Inc with headquarters in Alberta (Canada) so the users claim of United States could possibly be incorrect since Shaw only provides services in Canada.
The kickstarter link does go to a fundraiser campaign and the producer name 'Steepled Hat Studios' seems to exist and make wargaming pieces and environments.
I found a blog post written by some Dustin talking about a kickstarter campaign for an iron age farmstead.

I would say this is legit.

This one is a bit suspicious.

I don't know if the link goes to a real kickstarter project or not.

Suspended one.
This one tried to get clever and use a user name which was not a first name - surname combination.
The single post was more than enough evidence for a suspension though ....

An old spammer I found via KitMaker Gallery comments. Probably the same person as kennynguyen123 since he spammed the same picture with a similar link.

Two profiles by the same guy.

The first is a US account where I followed his messages.
https://armorama.kitmaker.net/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=CGI_furniture

And that led me to a second account from Scotland.
https://armorama.kitmaker.net/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=CGIFurniture




Thanks Gary!
I needed something to cheer me up today.
Someone had already suspended the first account, CGI_Furniture but CGIFurniture was still there so I could suspend it

Perhaps I should create the occasional spam account just to keep you entertained.

It has been a dry period for a while now, not a spammer since Gary Kato found one on the 17th of September but
TODAY
the long wait finally paid off and I got the opportunity to whack another spammer over the head.
The case was 100% clear, peter30 posted some garbage about selling diplomas/degrees in IT.
Now he is no more ... mwhahahaha

My mistake.
The display of the user looked the same way as for a suspended user, the difference was that it was in that shape because of this:
"USER EMAIL NOT VERIFIED!
You are only seeing this profile because you are an admin."

I saw the shape of the display and thought: "Bugger, I missed out on a kill. Dang! I needed something to cheer me up ..."

Now it is properly suspended.

Someone beat me to it.
The IP-nr comes up "dirty" and it is located in India while user claims the Stars and Stripes as flag so the suspension was legit
