Happens on every forum, its just more noticeable here because the forum is new and doesnt have thousands of threads to hide in.
Just report it using the Triangle Caution button on the lower left corner of the post and it will be removed.

Better than on the main-site wordpress installation :)

At least these forums are up while [H] is/ was down.

I can't remember but is there any kind of captcha required when doing a registration ? & email validation?

those things could really lower the ammount of spammers

I was using one image verification. Yesterday I switched to reCaptcha. We'll see how this works.

OK so that did not work. I may have to go to the custom question version.

TBH i dont think it matters. It is still going to happen. I see these same types of post on [H] but they just get caught and removed quicker because there are thousands of users and 30-40 mods/admins.

I'm going to try a few new things just to see what I can get working. It is only one a day now, but, for example, STH's main blog gets a few thousand a month but still a few get through. Thanks for reporting guys.
