    Keep getting this as well. You'd think a company like Google would be able to fix something like that.

    That's the reason I stopped using google analytics. Either keep adding filters or live with useless data... It never ends.

    The more we are worried the more traffic we will get from that junkie. He is doing it for fame as per his own claims, so the less we discuss the faster he will vanish with his spam.

    More to the point, how is he finding the sites in the first place, nobody is showing urls on here, so he shouldn't be finding members sites.
