Thank you for reporting these, they've been removed and the user/email address used banned.

We'll try to make some changes to curb the spam, though that is a tough thing to do as these days there are computers registering and posting on forums automatically.  :-\

Do you mean that you received PM's as well as there being the forum posts?

think that is because the Knee Guru sends an automatic notification by email if there is a PM for you - your email address is not on display to the public.
