Nope, this poster is a serial spammer. Not only spams on here but on all the Facebook forums too. Have reported him/her to Facebook for spamming and blocked his/her posts. Sad really! :(

I see we have a serial blog spammer in the plays board now  - all of his/her posts (bar one) are just links to the blog with a one line review, they never return to respond in the same thread

I'm with xanderl.  It's someone wants to add to the debate and link to a blog in their signiture and have some of their posts link to a review then I don't have any problem with that at all, but if that persons only post's are to link to their review and never interact with anyone, then I'd be happy to see them deleted.
If, for some strange reason you care what I've seen, it's all here:

Posts that just contain links are tedious.  Even when it's not outright spamming of blogs, it's a pain when someone posts a link to a news story without summarising it.  A link should back up a post, not be a substitute for one.

Over-enthusiastic bloggers can be guilty of it, but normally it's easy enough to tell the difference between someone who is keen to talk about a subject and to show off their blog, and someone with no interest in contributing to the forum in the first place.  I take the view that someone who lacks the ability to link politely to their blog is unlikely to have anything interesting to say on their blog.  They might get hits, but will they get repeat visitors?
