And nothing will stop them from continuing.
Spammers do not care if they post in the proper forums, nor do they care if there is an existing sticky. They will post whatever worthless junk they want wherever they want.
The general web building seems to be the magnet for the most spam. Which works fantastically since I know where to look for it.
On the plus side, this is typically a relatively safe topic to post when you attempt to raise post count. If you feel that it is nothing but junk, the easiest thing to do is simply down their reputation. They'll always stay under moderation filters when they are a part of the unconfirmed usergroups, and they require 0+ reputation to get there.
