It’s less to get people to click on the links than to increase their page rank by having more prominent websites link to theirs, I think. Which is why there are so many spammy user profiles that don’t do anything.

They’ve been spamming the forums for over a year. Just ignore it and let us do our jobs, please. If you want, you can report it to one of the mods on IRC.

Like Olivia said, it’s mostly for SEO purposes. That’s why you see so many profiles with nothing but a wall of links. It boosts their pagerank on search engines. Higher pagerank = more clicks = more money.
Use this thread to report spam accounts. The mods will check this periodically and delete the offending accounts.

Why don’t we make it so only people who have posted 25+ comments or what ever to have links on their profiles?

So that would force them to overwhelm the forums with spam so we can banned them accordingly.
