Spammers are up to cunning tricks on the CPDN boards. One of them is to leave posts that might seem harmless; a "me too" or some pasted text from Wikipedia relating to the subject of the post.
Then, when our guard is down, they can insert a viagra-advertising signature into their profile and have it pop up on all their prior posts.
I think that this is done by people rather than bots, but I can't be sure.
I moderate transgender
. Most of the posts are f-locked, but recently on the ones that aren't, I've had spammers posting from real LJ accounts with click through links in smileys to porn sites.

We've been worried about smilies as well, for similar reasons.
