I think this thread has gotten pretty far off course of the original question, which was:
Automated Forum Profile Link Building - Does it Work?
So I would like to re-ask the original poster's question:
Is using automated forum profile software an effective way of increasing Page Rank and increasing position in the SERPs?
Please understand this is not a question about morality. Nor is it a question about the best remedies for BLOCKING spam posts on sites that rely on user-generated content.
It is a question on the effectiveness of boosting one's SERPs by creating forum profiles on a wide scale.
