Excellent question bernie.  And good guess stephen -- but not quite correct.  Who can guess (moderators not allowed to try), how the spammers were caught who didn't make a post (or even try to make a post)?

Is it because they leave spam links in their profile/signature?

mwb1100 wins the prize.

Half the people we ban are caught because they (or the semi-automated bots that they use), create forum accounts and immediately fill in profile information that has spam text and links.  Their intention is that their forum account profile page will be accessible somewhere on the web and they will benefit by having those pages contain the spam links.  What they don't realize is that our forum code will specifically not show such spam links for a new user, and the admins get an email alert when a new user tries to do such a thing.
