@tedter and anyone interested.
I was thinking back to when google got rid of all the link benefit from logfiles and how easily that was for them. That was platform checking in part.
On the profile links - surely - if the following conditions are met - then 80% of forum profile spam would be dumped.
1. Identify Forum Platforms
2. In each one - find links and IF there is more than 1 post by the forum member - load the link to the target site link profile - mark this link with forum profile identifier. Otherwise discard link.
3. Thats the forums done.
4. Scan the link profile of a site
5. If % forum profile identified links is > (turnable dial) - dont pass juice.
Its a small job - which could be at least tested by them.
