The question is, is there any harm with this tacits? Answer:no
You just create an account, you do not spam the forum or blog.
This is simply taking advantage of dumb code of forums and of all the dumb search engines which see it as a link and pass on trust.
I think it is time for forum and search engine owners to make these links nowollow.
Why are all these profile pages dofollow? I think the coder smoked marihuana or he has no clue at all. I suggest you code your own forum software, see webmasterworld.
So some people here really think it is spam creating a profile? Check your email inbox and you will see real spam. Some people just don't get it. Go ahead and code your own stuff. Stop whining it will not help at all, learn coding and stop spam.
